History



HenryIn 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.
