Our youth are the leaders of tomorrow. As Knights of Columbus we have an opportunity, and indeed, a responsibility, to provide youth with the means to become personally committed and involved in meeting the challenges of our times.

These activities can take many forms – obviously the Columbian Squires as the official youth organization of the Knights of Columbus is for many councils a primary consideration when defining the council’s youth program. However, members can be encouraged to volunteer themselves in other Parish or community based youth groups and programs where their is a need for adult leaders.

The Order further supports youth with a number of bursary programs available to the sons and daughters of members and deceased members.

In the British Columbia and Yukon jurisdiction, the State Council administers the Bishop J. Lobsinger OMI, Memorial Bursary Program – current information on this program is available on the Documents and Forms page, and recipients may be announced on the Press Releases page.
