Coordination of Youth Ministry

The Sector for Youth Ministry maintains constant contact and networks with those responsible for the coordination of Youth Ministry in the Interprovincial Conferences, and maintains a privileged rapport with the Coordinators of Youth Ministry in the various provinces, valuing the wealth that comes from meeting with the plurality of situations, and educational and cultural approaches.

School/Professional Formation Commissions

In the Salesian tradition “Schools and Professional Formation Centers have always been places of critical cultural development…and of the construction of a professionalism according to a life plan inspired by Gospel values” (Guidelines of the Educational Mission of the FMA, N.167). In order to coordinate the service that these formal educational environments offer the mission of the Church and society, the Youth Ministry Sector is in constant contact with those responsible on other continents  for the School/Professional Formation commissions:

School/Vocational Training Africa and Madagascar – CIAM Commission
Salesian School America Commission with SDB
School/Vocational Training Asia – CIAO Commission
Salesian School/Vocational Training Europe with SDB
School/Vocational Training India – PCI Commission

Institutes of Higher Studies

In recent years the Institutes of higher studies have become more firmly established as an expression of our educational mission.  Some are run by the Congregation, others in collaboration with establishments directed by the Salesians, by other religious congregations or ecclesial communities. The Salesian educational method and spirituality form an explicit or implicit point of reference in these institutes, which are characterised by:

  • A rigorous and scientific organisation of research, curricula and teaching material, in harmony with a Christian vision of the human person and of life;
  • Interdisciplinary dialogue between the various areas of study;
  • Curricular material of specifically ethical and theological character;
  • A diversity of formative programmes that demonstrate real attention to the students and to their journey towards maturity; 
  • A specific offer of evangelisation, Christian formation, commitment to the service of others, in openness to ecumenical and interfaith dialogue; 
  • Concrete witness to a more human culture from a Gospel perspective.
