What are Chapter Connections?
In 2019, Central Council began traveling to Eastern Diocese parishes to work with local ACYOA chapters and membership through a new initiative called Chapter Connections. This program replaced the national Chapter Workshop, with the hope of greater personal outreach to all current ACYOA chapters and communities hoping to establish new chapters. The goal of each Chapter Connection is to develop relationships, identify the current or future ACYOA chapter’s collective strengths, analyze their opportunities for growth, and help them develop a plan for future ministries and programs. To reach this goal, Central Council members lead participants through a series of interactive discussions and team-building exercises. Each Chapter Connection is tailored to meet the needs of the individual chapter in collaboration with the pastor and ACYOA chapter leadership.
If interested in having the ACYOA Central Council facilitate a Chapter Connection at your parish, please contact email@example.com.
