Developed for young adults, by young adults, the Wholemakers curriculum weaves together the latest climate science with insights from the Catholic tradition to equip young adults to be the faithful protagonists of transformation the world needs. This collaborative project is sponsored by Catholic Climate Covenant and Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, with contributions from the Youth and Young Adult Ministries Office within the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Secretariat of Laity, Marriage, Family Life, and Youth and the Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center in Seattle, WA.

Common Home Corps
Common Home Corps is a year-long leadership and spiritual formation program for young adults (ages 18-35) within select U.S. dioceses. This program is led by Catholic Climate Covenant in collaboration with Loyola University Chicago and Creighton University.
Common Home Corps empowers young adults to catalyze climate action in their diocese by building Pope Francis’s “culture of encounter.” The program trains leaders to organize local Catholics, meet with their bishop and other leaders, and advocate for climate action that lives the Church’s ecological mission including enacting the Vatican’s Laudato Si’ Action Platform with a focus on net zero emissions for Catholic facilities.

Youth Mobilization Program
The Catholic Climate Covenant's Youth Mobilization effort is a new movement of high school students who are working to live out Laudato Si’ and take action to address the climate crisis and ecological and human degradation. They will become ministers of climate action in their parish, school, and/or communities.
Student leadership teams organize and host an annual Catholic Youth Climate Summit (CYCS), with the objective that each attendee of the summit leaves with an action plan to take to their parish, school, or community.
To get involved, contact and schedule a meeting with Kayla S. Jacobs, Program Manager of Youth Mobilization at the Catholic Climate Covenant at firstname.lastname@example.org
