Volunteers are needed for National Catholic Youth Conference

National Catholic Youth Conference 2011 logoThe Archdiocese of Indianapolis will host the National Catholic Youth Conference in November, and needs help to make the event a success.

More than 25,000 high school and Catholic youths from across the country will gather at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Nov. 17-19.

More than 1,000 adult volunteers are needed to support this event. Volunteers will provide Hoosier hospitality to guests, help with safety and security for the groups of youths, assist with liturgies, provide transportation assistance and work in the conference’s thematic park.

Highlights of the conference include daily Mass, keynote speakers ValLimar Jansen, Mark Hart, Mike Patin, Bishop Luis R. Zarama of Atlanta and Christina Lujan, many Catholic musicians and various interactive opportunities in the thematic park.

To become a volunteer, log on to the website at www.archindy.org/ncyc and fill out the online application form. Note that all adult volunteers need to have completed the diocesan child protection protocol program and a background check.

For more information, call Kay Scoville, archdiocesan director of youth ministry, at 317-236-1477 or 800-382-9836, ext. 1477, or send an e-mail to her at kscoville@archindy.org. †
