I tried using youth:ancestor-or-self::section[last()]/folder, but that 
gives me a validation error.

its the element name in the namepsace,not the axis


(guessing, as you didn't show the input)

on the otehr hand rather than going all the way up each time, you could
just start from the other end


if th etop level section is at some known position relative to th eroot
of the document.

As its a constant you can make it a global variable

<xsl:variable name="path" select="/a/b/youth:section/youth:folder"/>

then you can just use $path

ie replace by

 <a href="{$path}/{youth:url}">
