Young Catholic Professionals (YCP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, founded in 2010, with a mission to challenge, train, and inspire young adults working in various professions to Work in Witness for Christ. YCP is dedicated to fostering Catholic identity, encouraging community and inspiring a call to action for young people. YCP is one of the nation’s fastest growing young adult ministries, with 20 chapters that stretch across the United States. YCP can be found in cities like Orange County, Portland, Phoenix, Dallas, Chicago, Detroit, Denver, Jacksonville and New Orleans, and more!

Through spiritual direction, mentorship, career counseling, networking, catechesis, retreats, national conferences and more, young Catholics in their 20’s and 30’s are empowered to witness their faith at work and through work, performing their professional vocations for the glory of God and seeing their workplaces as a natural site for evangelization. YCP’s programs and events help members interact with seasoned Catholic professionals who have already made the choice to live out their faith in all aspects of their lives.

As a countercultural movement among a demographic of underserved adults, YCP seeks to gather, equip, and deploy young Catholic professionals back into their parishes as devout servant-leaders positioned to serve and edify both the Church and the world. To be sure, YCP's Catholic roots are deep and unwavering. Inspired by the challenge of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI to raise up a new generation of hopeful Catholics, YCP represents that long-needed missing link to bring young professionals deeper into Christ’s One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

    On an annual basis, YCP members from diverse industries and geographies gather for an inspirational weekend conference led by some of the nation's most exciting Catholic role models. In addition to numerous social events, YCP members grow stronger in their conviction to 'Work in Witness for Christ' through challenging speeches, inspiring meditations, and renewing faith formation. At this conference, YCP members forge meaningful relationships that develop into lasting friendships and even potential business partners! Our Members find so much joy in knowing that there are Catholics all around them that share their same values and passions. At our annual National Member Conference, we are able to delight in these commonalities and the gift that is this national family by uniting these young people together to further their relationship with Christ and one another.

    Strengthened by the hundreds of other young professionals striving to ‘Work in Witness’ alongside them, young professionals will leave YCP’s National Member Conference with the confidence and courage they need to become the future leaders of our Church and feel empowered to act as ambassadors for Christ in all aspects of their lives, including the workplace.
