    Young Catholic Professionals (YCP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, founded in 2010, with a mission to challenge, train, and encourage 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 Catholics in their 20’s and 30’s so that they may be empowered to see their workplaces as a natural site for evangelization.

    Our mission calls upon the intercession of St. Joseph the Worker, our patron saint. Young professionals live and work in an environment of constant stimulation. St. Joseph reminds us of the importance of stillness, reflection, and prayer.

    Through YCP thousands of Catholics across the country are finding the resources and support they need to answer their personal calling to a higher standard of faith and business. YCP’s vibrant community strengthens and encourages young Catholics to become the future leaders of the Church that we are in need of today.
