Young Catholic Professionals (YCP) is a national nonprofit founded in 2010 in Dallas, Texas on the mission to challenge, train, and inspire young adults working in various professions to Work in Witness for Christ. It has since established successful chapters in several metropolitan communities throughout the United States.
At the invitation of Archbishop Sample, YCP has started the process to establish a YCP chapter in the Portland Metropolitan area. A Portland chapter of Young Catholic Professionals will help fill a need in our growing metropolitan region by fostering Catholic identity, encouraging community, and inspiring action and witness. While the YCP Portland chapter will be an independent organization, it will work closely with the archdiocese’s Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministry.
Recruitment of potential chapter leaders is the first step in this process and we need your assistance in identifying potential leaders of the YCP Portland chapter. YCP leadership volunteers should be between the ages of 20-39, single or married, and be devout practicing Catholics who are zealous about the future of our Church.
If you know of a young adult with those qualifications, please invite him or her to apply for the YCP Portland Chapter Leadership Team within the next 30 days at
More information about YCP can be found at its national website, www.youngcatholicprofessionals.org.
