Young Adult Membership in the Knights

Why should someone in their 20s and 30s join the Knights of Columbus? Active participation at this transitional life stage is an excellent way to make lifelong friends who share your faith and values, become a part of your community and to build a professional and social network.

Members also have access to unique benefits and formational resources.

College Councils

The mission of the Knights of Columbus College Council Program is to promote the moral, intellectual and spiritual development of the future leaders of civil society, the Order, and the Church through witness to the Gospel and dedication to the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.

Contact us for information on starting a college council at your school.

Young Adult Chapters
A young adult chapter is a joint venture between a state council, local councils and the Supreme Council office designed to respond to the unique needs of young adult members and to support their development.

Through these chapters, young members receive support and encouragement to continue their active involvement in the Knights after graduation, especially through enhancing the membership experience of young parish council members.

Contact us for information on starting a young adult chapter in your area.
