ECYD is an international association of adolescents that make a pledge of friendship with Christ and with each other to build up a new world according to the Gospel. Its mission is to collaborate with Christ so that he might reign in the hearts of adolescents and in the world. (ECYD Statutes 1, 3)
Because ECYD is part of Regnum Christi, every activity for youth that a RC member does is infused with the sprit of ECYD. In Washington DC we have the following ECYD programs: The Leadership Training Program, Conquest, Mission Youth and Camp Castleton. We also have several ECYD events throughout the year.
