Experience YCP Conference 2021

The world needs YCP and the conference leaves no doubt that this is not a wishy washy organization but a grounded and truth oriented movement that we are all hungering for.

-YCP Nashville Attendee

There was such a wonderful balance between professional growth, spiritual development and building community. I have never experienced anything like it as a young adult.

-YCP Chicago Attendee

An incredible experience, truly answered prayer. Such high quality in the smallest details. Rooted in prayer and the sacraments - it was clear those were the center of the day. Loved meeting new people and being so affirmed in my vocation to work in the secular workforce

So honored to be a mentor. It was so much fun to lead conversation and glean insights from our incredible attendees! I actually received a lot of affirmation from them so I'd be more than happy to do this again!

-YCP Detroit Attendee

The break out session was one of the best parts of the whole weekend...It was great to reflect on Patience and learn where we need to practice patience, as well as watch out for undue submission. I think both the members and the mentors we very fulfilled by the experience.

-YCP Phoenix Attendee

I really enjoyed the intimacy and vulnerability that was achieved through the breakout sessions. It was great to be able to speak intentionally with a handful of other Catholics that I had not previously met. We all came from different careers and the application of how to best live out prudence if our lives was a very fruitful discussion.

-YCP San Diego Attendee

The networking and mentorship was such a great tool for us and meeting other people in similar walks of life was amazing. The speakers were top notch as well! Great choices!

-YCP Dallas Attendee

The conference is consistently good all of the years I've attended.

Great opportunity to network with other young Catholic professionals from all over the country, as well as with seasoned professionals from a variety of different industries.

-YCP Chicago Attendee

This is an incredible group of young professionals that anyone should be excited to meet! The connections made are honestly priceless and I am excited to see this organization continue to grow exponentially in the come years!

Everyone is so welcoming. The speakers are great. Part retreat, part professional development, part social. This is a wonderful conference to attend - truly.

-YCP Nashville Attendee

It has inspired me to join and consider a leadership role in my home chapter.

-YCP New Orleans Attendee

A lot of times other conferences are jam packed and you don't have time to soak in any of the speakers. I liked that this conference had a good balance of being able to socialize and network while also having phenomenal speakers to listen to and learn from.

-YCP Dallas Attendee

I think every young Catholic in a professional career needs to attend this conference. They will not regret it. It was formative, inspiring, sacramental, beautiful, and a great way to network and meet like-minded people!

-YCP St. Louis Attendee

I feel on FIRE with the faith and want everyone in my current Catholic community to have the same fire as well. I've already texted about 10 people to join our future chapter

-YCP Chicago Attendee

It was the best decision I have ever made. This weekend taught me that Catholics are fun - you don't have to choose between a devout life and a fun/social one, a devout life can be fun and social! Everyone at this conference walks with the Lord and makes me want to be better!!!!

-YCP Los Angeles Attendee

An incredible experience, truly answered prayer. Such high quality in the smallest details. Rooted in prayer and the sacraments - it was clear those were the center of the day. Loved meeting new people and being so affirmed in my vocation to work in the secular workforce

It was the most beautiful blend of faith and fun, and helped remind me why i choose to be Catholic every day. YCP gives me strength for the journey!

-YCP Denver Attendee

I was very impressed with YCP's 'Work of Our Hands' conference. Everything was run smoothly with a high-caliber offering of dynamic and orthodox talks. Most of all, I enjoyed connecting with some great people and was encouraged by the chance to meet and share with other committed Catholics.

-John Henry Folley, Fine Artist, Live Painter, Illustrator, and 2021 Conference Vendor

There were so many on fire Catholics, and so many powerful stories of conversion, reversion, and faith...Through weekends like this one I get ever closer to sainthood and the kingdom of God.
