Youth Council & peer Ministers

About the Youth Council

The Youth Council is the second and third years of formation for teens. The council functions as an advisory board that collaborates with and advises the Regional Director of Youth Ministry and Core Team. The Youth Council is comprised of teens from across the parishes that participate in United Catholic Youth Ministries. 

Youth Council members also receive formation and serve their home parishes as Peer Ministers and are available to talk with and mentor teens. 

Council leaders serve on the Archdiocesan Pastoral Youth Council (APYC). The APYC is the Cardinal's advisory board of youth.
