WELCOME to our Youth Programs Page.

Our youth are our leaders of tomorrow. Now is the time to teach and mold them into the leaders we need to lead our world. Get them involved in our Youth programs. It is our job to promote positive reinforcement for them, so they can make this world a better place to live.

It was Fr. McGivney's dream to take care of the women and children. It is then our job to follow his dream and make it a reality. The greatest thing about the Knights Youth Programs compared to many of other youth programs are they are Catholic faith based.  Whether it is Coats For Kids, Soccer Challenge, Free Throw Championship, Substance Abuse Awareness Poster Contest, Essay Contest, or our very own Spelling Bee, get involved! Make it happen! Lead by example!

Make our Order known and attractive to the future Knights participating in the Youth Programs.

We need to plant the seed early. The Youth programs are a pouch full of seeds.  We need committed Knights and Councils to sow them.  I am here to help on any questions you may have.

I recommend all Grand Knights, Financial Secretaries, Council Program Directors, Council Youth Directors to order materials for ALL Youth Programs early in the Fraternal Year.  This way you can plan which ones you want to hold this year and you're ready if there is a last minute plan.

Never forget to tell fathers of participants about the Order of Catholic men sponsoring the activity.  They may be wondering about the Knights and maybe nobody has invited  to join the world's largest fraternal organization of Catholic men.  Hand them a Form 100.  Many active Knights today learned about the Order bringing their kids to the local competitions.  You never know, maybe that dad you recruit today will get his son in the hook 4 - 8 years from now.

Vivat Jesus!
