Lead

Volunteering with YCP is a unique opportunity to hone your professional skills, make lifelong friendships, and have a tangible impact on your Catholic community.

Join A Chapter Team

Chapters are run entirely by dedicated volunteers - people like you who have busy lives and careers but feel a calling to serve their peers in a greater way. This team collaborates to network with high-level executives, deploy financial resources, and rally a diverse set of skills to achieve challenging goals and bring young people to Christ through exceptional YCP programming.

The YCP Staff work closely with chapter volunteers to provide professional development, technology, ongoing direction and support - everything the local team needs to successfully grow a YCP community in their city.

Get Started

Members of the Team

Leaders

Leaders are young professionals in their 20’s and 30’s who offer anywhere from 1-10+ hours a week (unpaid volunteer work for the glory of God) in order to spearhead the efforts of their chapter. Leaders may be Directors of a team, or serve as a support role within a specific team (marketing, operations, etc.). A leadership term is a one-year commitment with the option to reapply for future terms.

Board of Directors

Ideal board members are devout Catholics, experienced professionals, well-connected community leaders, and passionate about young people and the propagation of the Faith. Board Members commit to a 2-year term with the chapter. Their role includes being an advocate for the YCP mission, sharing speaker and mentor referrals, and providing guidance and strategic direction for the chapter.

Chaplains

The chaplain's role is to shepherd the chapter team and serve the spiritual needs of the YCP chapter community. Chaplains provide spiritual guidance and help foster greater commitment to prayer and the sacraments. Ideal chaplains are devout Catholic priests (or deacons) who are dynamic, youthful preachers. They have the time to commit to shepherding the volunteer leaders (helping to refuel their service flame!).
