Our founder, Steve Kerekes, began with a tremendous desire to evangelize his students through pilgrimages to Europe and World Youth Day. This has now grown into a organization that shares that same desire. We choose knowledgeable guides who are energetic, faithful, living witnesses of the Catholic faith.
JMJyouth shares a common mission with youth ministers around the world: to evangelize, catechise, and change lives. We create opportunities for young people to open their hearts to the Grace of God on pilgrimages.
Our philosophy is simple: teach teens and young adults how to grow closer to God by removing the clutter of life and making room for Grace. We travel close to the ground, encountering the history and culture of the people.
We have over 25 years of pilgrimage experience that includes 10 World Youth Days and innumerable group pilgrimages to holy sites around the world.
Groups that choose to travel with JMJyouth are those who want to experience an authentic, Catholic youth pilgrimage supported by Pilgrimage Guides who are knowledgeable, faithful, and fun. We specially select Pilgrimage Guides that seek to inspire greatness while being exceptional role-models of faith and life.
