Catholic Youth Advisory Council (CYAC)

Catholic Youth Advisory Council (CYAC) is an active leadership youth council that plans, promotes and presents Diocesan youth events during the school year! Youth members and their adult advisers live throughout the Diocese of Fargo. They come together five times during the year to prepare, promote and present the Diocesan Youth Events. If you are interested in being on CYAC please contact Kathy Loney in the Youth and Young Adult Ministry Department of the Diocese of Fargo at (701) 356-7902 and let her know you are interested.

Further information regarding joining CYAC:

A student will need to be in the eighth grade and be willing to participate in work crew for the spring event that year. It is also important the youth think about who they can ask to be their adult adviser. It is important that the adviser be of the same gender as the student, be at least 21 and in good standing with the Catholic Church, have or are willing to participate in our Child Safe Environment program for the Diocese of Fargo (if they haven't already), can drive and participate with the student for each session (five a year) and both be willing to share and grow in their spirituality within the Catholic faith. If you enjoy brainstorming, collaborating with others, and making things rich in spirituality happen for the teens of the Diocese of Fargo, you are a candidate for CYAC. Contact Kathy Loney at (701) 356-7902.
