Youth 2000 is a spiritual initiative established to draw young people through Mary to a deep and lasting union with Jesus Christ, especially in the Eucharist, the “source and summit of the Christian life.”  In short, it is a gateway that leads young people into the everyday life of the Church.

Youth 2000 carries out its mission, based on the vision of St John Bosco in the following 3 ways, known as the 3 ‘pillars’ of Youth 2000:

1. Devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
2. Devotion to Our Lady particularly through the Rosary
3. Fidelity to the Teaching of the Church, including a deep love for Sacred Scripture.
