The Young Lasallian Movement aims at awakening awareness of the personal and collective vocational journey of adolescents and young adults involved in the Lasallian Educational Mission. This movement engages us on a personal, professional and spiritual level to go beyond our boundaries and to reach out so that we and those we accompany may have life, and have it to the fullest (John 10:10).

What is a Young Lasallian?
The term, Young Lasallian, unites all who are involved with the Lasallian educational mission. We are committed to changing and transforming the lives of young people, especially the poor, through education. We commit to faith, service and community in dedication to St. John Baptist de La Salle.
This particular age group is very influential on the mission as a whole, coming up with creative and innovative ways to keep the 300-year Lasallian legacy alive. The Young Lasallian Movement is international, aiming to support young people spiritually, academically and holistically to build a better world.
Who is a Young Lasallian?

Lasallian Youth Assembly
The Lasallian Youth Assembly is an annual, week-long gathering where Lasallian Youth from our 14 Lasallian high schools come together to immerse themselves in the social justice issues of our society today. Students come from all over the Midwest District to celebrate faith, service and community with their Lasallian peers. This unique opportunity brings together students from all different backgrounds and faiths and gives them an opportunity to build lifelong relationships through a shared desire to build a better world.
VEGA is a formation experience for young professionals (ages 22-35) working in our Lasallian ministries. VEGA, an acronym, comes from the Italian verbs, to see, to judge, to act, and is as well one of the brightest stars in the night sky. These two understandings situate this formation experience within a Lasallian context: the invitation to see life animated by a spirit of faith, and that spirit of faith then animates a practical response lived out in a spirit of zeal.
