The Augustinian Recollect Youth has come into being as an expression, among young people, of the life and style of St. Augustine as shared with his friends and as imitated by his followers. The young people of these groups seek to follow Jesus in accordance with the charism of St. Augustine who has provided us with ideas and symbols which help in the daily living of the Gospel.

In these groups, the young participants come to be united spiritually to one another and committed to living the four essential dimensions of the Christian life, that is, the formative, the collaborative, the apostolic, and union in communion.
