Our ORG is an approved Non-Profit partner, but the Youtube livestreaming capability is nowhere to be found. How can we get access to use this tool on our Channel?

If you're a Non-profit in the US, you should be able to access livestreaming at www.youtube.com/my_live_events, or by going to your video manager page and selecting the option 'Live Events' on the left.

I honestly don't know if Live Streaming is available for Non-profits not based in the US.

We are a non-profit in the US. I am still unable to access www.youtube.com/my_live_events. I recieve a notice that say I do not have permission to view this page. I also do not see the option for 'Live Events' on the left of my video manager page.

Any other recommendations or tech help I can call? Thanks.

Does your nonprofit account have any of the other nonprofit features mentioned in the referenced file below:
 
Do you have these features:
1) Donate Button
2) Advanced Branding
3) Call-to-action overlays
4) Google nonprofit toolbar, accessed by signing in here: http://www.google.com/nonprofits/
5) Is the youtube channel properly enrolled in your nonprofit account (http://support.google.com/nonprofits/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2634809)
 
If you are still having trouble, contect the non-profit support team at -nonprofit AT youtube.com-.  Make sure you email from the email address on file with the nonprofit program (otherwise, the email will not go through), and make sure to include your organization name and EIN number for verification.

Yup all those items are there except for live streaming. Strange. I will email them. Thanks again for your help.

Youtube just updated their live-stream help page for non-profits a day ago.  Do you see a "Live Streaming" Option at the bottom of your 'account' page (www.youtube.com/account) under 'Links?'
Re: Where is the livestreaming capability? pewtube 8/29/12 7:15 PM
I did go through that instruction. Nothing. The only thing under 'Links' is 'Learn how to promote your videos'. I dropped them an email. Hopefully they will get back to me soon.
