Notre Dame Vision for Campus and Youth Ministers complements Vision for High School Students during the summers at Notre Dame. The conference includes theological exploration and personal renewal with a community of campus and youth ministers from across the nation. Engaging and enriching keynotes, facilitated discussions, prayer, and reflection address the various aspects of God's call for each of us and the response of faith.

High school campus ministers, diocesan directors of youth ministry, parish youth ministers, high school religion teachers, and all those whose ministry efforts touch the lives of young people are invited to attend. Participants are not required to accompany a high school group or individual.
