In a distinctly Catholic setting, the National Catholic Youth Conference
invites participants 
to encounter Christ, experience church, and be empowered for discipleship.

In addition to opportunities to receive the sacraments of the Eucharist and penance, NCYC participants attend general and breakout sessions on topics relevant to living as a disciple of Christ in today’s world, visit with organizations that provide resources and other support to youth and youth ministry, spend time in personal and communal prayer, and engage in service to others.
