     The history of Student Youth Organizations is related to the order of  the Head of the Executive Office of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ramiz Mehdiyev  on No. 41 of February 15, 2005 Decree on " Approval of the Action Plan for the Improvement of Work with Young People and Students in the Republic of Azerbaijan". Minister of Education Misir Mardanov signed the order of 89 of February 28, 2005, "On Approval of Action Plan for Improvement of Work with Young People and Students in the Republic of Azerbaijan" in order to ensure the fulfillment of the tasks assigned to the Ministry of Education in connection with the execution of that decree. Thus, all state and non-state educational institutions have begun to establish student-youth organizations depending on the number of students.
