Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) Statement
YOU are welcome, valued, and celebrated at United Catholic Youth Ministries (UCYM) because YOU are the Body of Christ! The foundation of the mission and ministry of UCYM is to thoughtfully, prayerfully, and with intention build a culture where diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are respected, intentionally valued, and practiced by creating bold, innovative, and pastoral strategies that can serve as a model for faith formation, outreach, and pastoral ministry for all those served through UCYM.
Diversity is a FACT. Equity is a CHOICE. Inclusion is an ACTION. Belonging is an OUTCOME.
