Young leaders go forth in joy!

How we do it

As young adults, we walk together in community for 18 months, offering accompaniment, leadership formation, spiritual reflection, and experiential and contextual grounding in Gospel based justice. 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 prophetic, authentic love in action.

We seek solidarity through authentic encounter. We are attentive to the signs of the time and particularly the stories and issues confronting those on the margins. We discern and embrace instances of justice that emerge in daily struggles around the world. Together, we let the Spirit guide us in discerning how we can be responsive missionary disciples.

Building upon Maryknoll’s over 100 years of global immersion experience and service, we offer 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 our faith.
