Young Adult Empowerment Community

What we do

We build small communities of young adults committed to making the world a better place with opportunities for leadership development, social justice engagement, and discernment to find our calling, rooted in prophetic welcome and authenticity.

We also partner with local young adult communities to provide formation opportunities and immersion experiences which offer a sustainable faith grounding around this engagement and work in Spanish and English.

We want YOU to be a part of our community!

How we do it

We walk alongside young adults in community for one and a half years, offering accompaniment, leadership formation, spiritual reflection and processes, and experiential and contextual grounding. Based in five US Cities as well as digitally, we offer a one-of-a-kind growth process, deeply integrating our daily lived experiences with faith, rooted in community and Maryknoll's charism of spreading God's love and mercy through compassion at work.

We emphasize inclusivity to global vulnerable populations, through mission, and connecting through global solidarity in a relevant way. We pray for and with those living on the margins. Maryknoll has over 100 years of global immersion experience, which offers unique, authentic, grassroots wisdom for those interested in social justice, immersion programs, and walking with our brothers and sisters on the margins, locally and globally, with the support of faith.
