New York Catholic Youth Day

New York Catholic Youth Day is an annual event that gathers hundreds of teens for a day filled with inspirational talks, lively music, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Mass with Cardinal Dolan, service opportunities and time for the teens to get to know each other. Admission is $40/youth or adult.

New York Catholic Youth Day is hosted by the Archdiocese of New York’s Department of Youth Faith Formation.

What should I bring?

An open mind and an open heart! Small purses are fine; leave the big backpacks at home.

Registration requirements?

Teens must be registered and attending with an adult. There is a 1:8 (Adult:Youth) requirement with a minimum of two adults per group.  All adult chaperones (leaders/volunteers) must be over the age of 21 and be Safe Environment compliant.

How do I become Safe Environment compliant?

All participants 18 years old or older must complete a background check by completing this form (en espanol) and returning to their parish/school.

Volunteers are required to fulfill Safe Environment training in one of two ways:

  • Completing an online video tutorial called Safer Spaces. Follow these instructions to register and take the 45-minute training. Upon completion, please download your certificate and bring it to the designated Safe Environment Officer at your parish office or school.
  • Or, coordinating with the designated Safe Environment Officer at your parish or school to watch the Safer Spaces video at the parish. (This option is easier for multiple adults to complete the process at one time.)
What is the cost?

The cost of admission is $40/youth or adult.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Taiza Sierra, by phone 646-794-2692 or by email.
