“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father."
A COMMITTED COMMUNITY OF STUDENTS
As a student movement for, among, and led by secondary and tertiary students, (while present in some places in the primary level), accompanied by adult animators and chaplains, IYCS is concerned with the issues faced by students and the role of education as a whole. In the reality of our young people, we recognize that we are not apart from society and are not just the future of the society but that, we are an active part of it today, with a special responsibility as students to question and analyze the problems of society.
The International Young Catholic Students (IYCS), also known as Young Christian Students (in some countries - with Catholic identity), has its roots in the development of several YCS National Movements in the spirit of the Specialized Catholic Action Movements.
The International Young Christian Students (IYCS) Asia constitutes the different YCS national movements in Asia.
Mainly composed of young students, IYCS is present in 87 countries all over the world:
Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, North America, and the Pacific.
The Movement is coordinated at the local, Diocesan, National, Regional, and International levels.
