Catholic Youth Organization

The Catholic Youth Organization enriches families and strengthens communities across southeast Michigan through youth programs that embrace the love and example of Jesus Christ. 

Since 1933, CYO has been working to improve the lives of Detroit’s young people regardless of their religious faith and racial or ethnic background. 

CYO operates four main programs:

Youth Leadership Development
Spiritual Scouting
Boys and Girls Camps

It is through these programs, that reach across religious, geographic, racial, gender and generational lines,  that the mission of CYO, “Mentoring today’s youth, empowering strong Christian leaders” will be accomplished.
