 Youth Outreach: Our Mission Minimize

Every young person has something unique and vital to contribute to society. Unfortunately, too many young people do not fulfill their potential because of their involvement in high-risk behaviors such as the use of alcohol and other drugs and premarital sex.


The Archdiocese of Chicago Respect Life Office hosts the Chastity Education Initiative (CEI), which addresses not only abstinence from sexual activity until marriage but also abstinence from alcohol, other drugs and risky behaviors. By partnering with schools, youth groups, parishes and other organizations, our mission is to lovingly instill the empowering message of chastity in the hearts and minds of Catholic teens and adults throughout the Archdiocese.


At minimal or no cost, we provide all Catholic schools, youth and young adult groups, parishes, universities and other organizations in the Archdiocese of Chicago with:

  • Dynamic Speakers
  • Up-to-date and medically-informed curricula 
  • Retreats
  • Rallies
  • Chastity Education Materials
