VBCC Youth Leadership

The Vicariate of Black Catholic Concerns (VBCC) Youth Leadership Ambassador Program is a select group of high school students (freshmen to seniors) who have shown leadership qualities, a desire to succeed, a positive attitude and prayerful spirit, and want to give back to their community and the Church.

Each youth is expected to attend Vicariate events, Ambassador enrichment days, a youth retreat and a community service event.

VBCC youth leaders have to be nominated by their pastor and youth minister. After the nomination, the youth are interviewed and a decision is made about acceptance. If you are interested in the program, you will need to fill out an application. Please email vbccambassadors@gmail.com.
