Salesians at UNThe Salesians of Don Bosco at the United Nations Launch Web Site to highlight worldwide work with the young

On Friday, March 19, 2010, the Salesians of Don Bosco launch a new website that highlights the presence of the Salesians at the United Nations and the work they do in over 130 countries on behalf of and with young people.

The Salesians of Don Bosco work to strengthen the participation of the young and those living in poverty in the discussions at the UN and in formulating policies and decisions that affect their lives. Salesians have a preferential option for marginalized, vulnerable, and/or excluded youth. They partner with the young to strengthen and support their human and spiritual development, responding to their perceived needs and accompanying them as they become agents for change in their individual lives and in society.
