Youth Crime Watch was established in 2002 when over fifty young people came together to address the growing rates of crimes, violence and drug in the city of Ibadan, Oyo State capital. This program has spread to other states of the federation including but not limited to Ondo, Lagos, Ogun, Osun, Ebonyi, Kwara, Imo, Rivers, Bayelsa, Kogi, FCT to mention but few. The successful pilot Youth Crime Watch program was located in St. Teresa’s College, Oke-Ado, Ibadan, where it experienced much success. In the first year of the program’s implementation, students helped to reduce their school crime problem. Equally important was the change in the students’ attitudes. They were learning they could make a positive difference. Students were reporting crime, saw positive results and enjoyed significantly improved morale and school spirit.

Youth Crime Watch of Nigeria was registered as a Non-Governmental Youth Organization in 2003 to support and continue the success of Youth Crime Watch by helping spread it throughout Oyo State and across the nation. In July 2010, the United Nations Committee on NGOs, i.e. Economic and Social Council granted a Special Consultative Status to the Youth Crime Watch of Nigeria. YCW Nigeria is a program of the African Centre for Citizens Orientation, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory, Nigeria.

Youth Crime Watch of Nigeria brings youths of all backgrounds together to identify and correct problems unique to their schools and communities. The YCW program empowers youths to take an active role in addressing the problems around them. Youths take ownership of their own YCW program for their school, neighborhood, public housing site, recreational center/park etc.

Youth Crime Watch of Nigeria (YCW Nigeria) assists youths in developing youth-led programs which can encompass up to nine key components that encourage "watch out" activities such as violence/crime reporting or youth patrols and "help out" activities such as conflict resolution, mentoring or mediation.
