The Salesians of Don Bosco of the Province of St. Philip the Apostle located in the Eastern United States and Canada with headquarters in New Rochelle, New York have developed a two-year formation program containing 16 sessions for collaborators in Churches, schools, retreat centers, youth clubs, camps, youth ministry programs, and young adult outreach. Anyone working in youth ministry, young adult outreach, religious education programs, retreats and youth events and programs of any kind would benefit greatly from the practical, holistic approach originated by St. John Bosco with his Oratory and Preventive System. Don Bosco was a master in developing and empowering young people to cope with an ever-changing world, the preparation needed for a successful future and a process where good rapport, active presence and pastoral charity are central.
