"If God can work through me, then He can work through anyone." Saint Francis of Assisi
Founded in 2011, the Associates of St. John Bosco, Inc. is a tax-exempt organization whose purpose is to assist high school and college students to foster faith as an essential part of their educational endeavors.
We currently are serving students in the Diocese of Arlington in Virginia. Through our summer College Nights, located in different parishes around the diocese, we connect incoming freshman and transfer students with other Catholic peers while also providing resources for them to grow in the Faith while at college. We also provide financial assistance through scholarships, encourage students to involve themselves in the life of the Church through our Associates program, and hold “Pack the Faith” events for high school seniors to assist them to make college selections and prepare to go to college thinking about the Catholic Faith.
Join us in encouraging and supporting young people desiring to be stronger Catholics!
We encourage college students to connect their faith to their education. ASJB fosters a deep knowledge of the Catholic faith, encourages a commitment to grow in the faith throughout college, and supports expanding the desire to love Christ by dedicated involvement in the Church serving others.
