In 1994, Henry Cappello shared with some leaders the need of giving Catholic youths and youth leaders the opportunity to come together to network, to be encouraged, to be formed and to be sent. This vision was received with great excitement and found support by many. To carry this vision, Europe Arise and eventually, Youth Arise International were given birth. Today, YAI is an International Catholic Network of about 45 organizations with youth ministries.
Youth Arise International, for its international events, relates to the Pontifical Council for the Laity. YAI initiatives can be organized on an international, regional or local level. While the different councils claim no juridical authority they collaborate together to operate and promote the vision. Each council maintains its autonomy, however, mutual support is encouraged through the sharing of spiritual and material resources in the spirit of the universal mission of the church.
