Supporting YTM

Knowing that family budgets are tight, we have kept YTM costs to a minimal registration fee of $800. The actual cost for a single student is approximately $2,000, much of which has been underwritten through grants. Today, just as YTM is growing, our ability to count on our founding grant is shrinking. We need your help in order to keep this vital ministry growing in the right direction. When you support YTM, you will be investing in a ministry that is making a significant difference in the lives of Catholic young people and those they serve.



Pray for the YTM staff, faculty, counselors, and youth - for those who have already been a part of the YTM family and for those who will join the YTM family in the future. Pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to work through this program to bring about the reign of God in our world.


Do you know a high school youth who would be perfect for YTM? Do you know an adult doing ministry in a parish or Catholic school who would benefit from continued education in Pastoral Ministry? Spread the word and help YTM reach even more young Catholic leaders and their adult mentors!
