Youth Program
Charles Van Buren, Director



The purpose of this Program Area is to Build Leaders for the Future.

    Today’s youth, the leaders of tomorrow, are looking for a challenge, for
    responsibility, for faith and trust. Yet, despite their commitments and dedication, the
    youth of the world are often condemned because of the uncontrolled actions of a
    minority of young people. As Knights of Columbus, it is our responsibility to provide
    youth with the means and the opportunities to become personally committed and
    involved in meeting the challenges of our times. There is a great deal more all of us
    can do to improve our youth programs. Recruit more men from the council level to
    work with young people. These adult leaders will help to mold the youth of today into
    the influential citizens of tomorrow. Exert more positive and constructive influence on
    your young people by becoming involved with them. Pay more attention to what they
    are saying. Demonstrate your support by sponsoring a Columbian Squires circle,
    aiding the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program, promoting the Boy Scouts or helping to
    combat drug and alcohol abuse. Numerous other avenues are always open in helping
    to build leaders for the future.
