Before YCP launches in any city, we ensure each chapter has the foundation and resources necessary to thrive for years to come within the local diocese. When enough interest for a YCP chapter is identified, local young professionals, seasoned supporters, diocesan contacts and/or religious work together as a “Chapter Growth Team” on a feasibility study for about a 2-3 month time period to confirm that there is a substantial need for YCP to launch programming locally. This is where your city is now in the process of starting a YCP chapter!
After the completion and approval of the feasibility study by YCP’s National Office, the opportunity to hold a more permanent position on the chapter’s volunteer leadership team or board of directors becomes available. Other key milestones the YCP Staff will assist you with include:
- Receiving formal support from the local bishop
- Attending virtual and in-person guidance sessions to prepare your chapter for a successful launch
- Fundraising to cover the initial investment made to launch the chapter and maintain top-notch chapter support.
