YCW (Young Christian Workers) and Impact are hosting an event titled ‘Empowering young women for social change’ with guest speaker Mary Foy MP. The event takes place on Tuesday 1st December, 7pm, on Zoom. For more information and to register, please contact Marc Besford, National President and Training & Development officer for YCW and Impact on firstname.lastname@example.org
The YCW is a movement of young people (17 – 30), run by young people. They meet in small groups (nowadays miostly online) to focus on their everyday experiences as young adults, reflect on them in the light of the Gospel and Church teaching and commit themselves to take authentic Christian action.
Impact is a programme and project of the YCW movement in England and Wales, made up of young people aged between 13 and 17 who meet regularly in groups in parishes, schools or local communities – again, this has had to be adapted to meet COVID restrictions.
Impact exists for the same reason that the whole of the YCW movement exists: because there is a terrible contradiction between what we believe to be the value and potential of young people, and what many young people experience in society that often exploits or disregards their dignity, purpose and value.
