The finely tuned five-point program of Teenage
Federation (spiritual, apostolic, culutral, social and athletic) is designed to help parishes structure a parish teen program. The parish program remains autonomous to address the specific needs of its community. Each parish is encouraged to come together with other Teenage Federation groups in their county on a regular basis to enhance its faith and social experience. There are two Archdiocesan events each year: Teenage Federation Conference and CYO Day.

A spiritual and apostolic concern for boys and girls and their adult leaders engaged in the various programs of the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts is the driving force behind CYO Scouting. Programs offered include religious awards, retreats and days of recollection and spiritual leadership formation.
