Guilherme Lopes: Salesian Youth Movement Coordinator 
The Salesian Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry 
Empowering Salesian Leaders (ESL) is a weeklong formation experience for Salesian alumni from high schools, parishes and youth groups between the ages of 18 and 23.

The program is organized by the Salesian Youth Movement Coordinator in conjunction with the Salesian Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry.  Via a series of learning sessions, workshops, community-building moments, and experiences of prayer, each participant deepens his or her identity as a Salesian Disciple of Jesus Christ.  

The experience  is intended to empower the participants to generate a vast outreach, in the Spirit of Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello, where faith encounter, faith formation, and faith transmission can be experienced by young adults who desire to be a part of the Salesian Youth Movement.

The program participants must have both graduated from Salesian high schools, parishes and youth grups, and be between the ages of 18 and 23. The experience is intended for those youth/young adults who desire to be or already are a part of the Salesian Youth Movement and to assist them in deepening their identity as a Salesian Disciple of Jesus Christ.
