About the Accompaniment Project

Over the last three years, NFCYM, in collaboration with the Center for Ministry Development, worked with nine parishes in three dioceses to develop faith-building relationships to accompany youth toward discipleship. The project aimed to equip parents and faith companions to walk with youth in faith, and build youth ministry around accompaniment where the parish community includes, values, and cherishes young members.

"NFCYM has accompanied me in reaching out to like minded professionals to better provide service (ministry) to adolescents. NFCYM has allowed me to network and grow professionally.

'Youth as Protagonists' has been essential to Pastoral Juvenil Hispana in the Diocese of Austin."

"The various resources have helped me keep our program exciting and vibrant. NFCYM has provided me with shared information via webinars, workshops, conferences, outreach, and opportunities that are very informative to help make my ministry successful.

NFCYM is an open forum for me to seek material, guidance and support in keeping the youth ministry program successful."
