The words young, Christian and worker describe three aspects of our reality. Many people fit in to one of these definitions or perhaps all. What characterises our movement and who were are as young people, however, is not that we are by definition young, Christian and workers, but that we use the review method of ‘See, Judge, Act’ as an application of our values and faith to our daily live. Ours is a method of action and reflection that engages young people to take hold of the work around them and transfer it as Jesus and the Apostles did.
For these reasons, the focus of our plan for expansion is to engage as young people to SEE the reality of our lives, our community and the world; JUDGE the relationship between the situation around us and what we believe should be happening; and finally ACT to create a change that reflects what we believe should be happening. We can do this as young people in our families, with our friends, in our workplaces, in our schools and universities and in our parishes.
The SEE, JUDGE, ACT method is a simple nine questions formula to understand our situation and then to take Action in light of our REALITY and FAITH.
