What is the YCW?
The Young Christian Workers (YCW) is an organisation for young people, which is ran by young people. The YCW calls young people together, out of their isolation, into groups so that they can come to know their true worth and dignity.
The YCW recognises that young people are the experts of their own reality and are often the best placed people to be the means of transformation in their own lives.
Through a process of enquiry, reflection and action (See, Judge, Act) they grow as leaders, serving, educating and representing other young people.
The mission of the YCW is lived out amongst young workers in the working world and those seeking work or studying. The YCW offers young adults (16-30) an organisation ideal for a parish, with the opportunity to link life and faith through reflection in small groups and lived Christian action.
The YCW runs the Impact Programme as a project for 13-17 years olds.
