Welcome to NIAC

In order to chart a new course for adolescent catechesis, systemic change in the way we think about and do adolescent catechesis is required. Because this level of systemic transformation requires a long-term vision rather than a short-term program, the Partnership for Adolescent Catechesis has carefully crafted a bold and comprehensive seven-year, eight-step process of transformation called the National Initiative on Adolescent Catechesis. The rationale behind the National Initiative on Adolescent Catechesis is to create a new paradigm for how the Catholic Church effectively forms the faith of young people and to assist parishes and schools across the country in assessing and re-thinking their methods and structures in this new light.
