Motto  : By the students, With the students, For the students



The YCS movement led for, by and among the secondary students, derives its energy from Christ and has the mission of the Church among students. It believes in the See, Judge and Act Method as a way of life.


YCS is a movement which grew out of the ideals of Joseph Cardijn (1882-1967), a Belgian priest who realised that the Church was not in touch with the young people, and that these young people were prevented from making any truly Christian responses to life because of the conditions in which they lived and worked. Due to Cardijn's appreciation of the Gospel, he had a deep respect for the dignity of each individual. The dignity comes from the fact that everyone is called to be sons and daughters of the living God. So, he gathered around him a small group, working on basis of his friendship with them and challenging them to respond to his vision of dignity for all. It took her nine starts before a group was prepared to work on his vision.

It was in 1925 and the Movement became the Young Christian Workers (YCW). YCS was started to promote the same values in the students' world.

One of the most important characteristics of the YCS is that it is a student movement, this means that

-       YCS is led for, by and among students.

-       YCS is based on friendship between students.

-       YCS knows that the experts on reality facing students are students.

-       YCS believes in any kind of studies and that unfolds our potential to love, or that helps us understand our world and God.
