What We Do

The Dominican Youth Movement USA connects today’s youth and young adults to the Dominican tradition of preaching and the participant’s own call to preach. Through our programs and workshops that offer a time, place, and context for establishing impactful relations, we build faith and strengthen our young people’s commitment to God, community, family, preaching, social justice, and the Dominican Order.

In 2015, DYMUSA brought together five different programs engaging young people of high school age through their young adult years – unifying their support and promoting their collective social impact.



Our Programs

Our organization is new but our programs and workshops are established and well known. Collectively our programs have introduced over 4000 young people to the Dominican Charism.

Youth Preaching Workshops

At these workshops students are exposed to the different ways we, the people of God, can preach through dance, music, drama, art, storytelling, to name just a few.

The conference empowers students to discover and deepen the preacher within through prayer, study, community, and the Dominican Family.

We’re looking to update our database and spread the word about the new work of the Dominican Youth Movement USA. We encourage you to update your contact information!

“The challenge of evangelization of the young certainly calls on us to promote the groups that may take part in the coordination of these Youth Movements, not as pastoral groups for young people, but rather as groups of young missionaries to the young.”

– Father Bruno Cadoré, Master of the Dominican Order.
