Our Mission

  • Inspired by Pope Saint John Paul II

  • Building a Civilization of Love and Truth

  • Shaping the Whole Person

The mission of the John Paul II Project is to help young people become builders of a civilization of love and truth. We focus on holistic formation programs that immerse the next generations in the example and teachings of St. John Paul II. Because we believe in young people, we mutually encourage and challenge them by cultivating environments that foster sanctity. 

Our Vision

We endeavor to carry out the New Evangelization through extending John Paul II’s legacy. Our hope is that through our programs, young people are formed to live out their call to sanctity and make a powerful impact on society, no matter what vocation or state in life. We want to make Catholic study abroad available to all university students in private and secular institutions nationwide.
We cultivate environments that foster sanctity through mutual encouragement and challenge young people.
