Office of Young Adult Outreach
The Region 3 Coordinator for Young Adult Outreach will connect Catholic young adults to resources, events, and likeminded peers in Rockland, Central Westchester, South Shore, and Yonkers counties of the Archdiocese of New York. In order to reach out to the young adults in Region 3, the coordinator will serve as a highly visible resource in assisting and supporting area leaders in identifying needs and developing new initiatives. The coordinator will serve as an initial contact for young adults, guiding them as they discover the various ministries and opportunities available in their region. The coordinator will seek first to foster fellowship and create community, while assisting in creating circumstances for building relationships and friendships among Catholic young adults. In addition, with a powerful communications infrastructure at his or her disposal—including thousands of contacts- the coordinator will utilize powerful and well branded marketing and social networking tools in order to attract young adults seeking Catholic resources. By attending events, organizing meetings, and networking, the coordinator will be a leader in the Catholic community of New York, specifically to the young adults, priests and the Church in his or her particular region, and he or she will seek to serve those who wish to encourage the faith life of the young adults in their particular communities. The coordinator will be very involved in the imminent growth and expansion of this program and its outreach.
