Specific to the Vietnamese community, VEYM aims to teach youth 5 yrs. – 12th grade to be virtuous people and good Christians. The objectives are to promote prayers for the Holy Father, devotion to the Eucharist, to honor Mary as a model for discipleship, and to support the missionary efforts of the Church through prayer, sacraments, service and sacrifice. Parents and other adults assist Youth Leaders as assistants and supporters to set up facilities, prepare snacks, sing songs, provide transportation for special events, and general chaperoning. Open to adults ages 25 and up. Youth leaders learn, share, teach, and guide other youth on living a “Eucharistic Day”, playing games, camping, skits, assisting in retreats, and prayer. The Commitment is 3-4 hours per week. Training is provided for both adult and youth volunteers, and a background check and Safe Environment training are required.
