This is the common problems of the youth everywhere. lac of encouragement, over protection of the parents is one of the reason.Due to the professional courses and tight cyllabus, students focus more on studies rather than giving service in the youth organisations. Modern communication facility and recreation facilities are another reason for youth staying away from these organisations. parish leaders and spiritual directors want to avoid headaches from youth, so they don t encourage the youths for active participation. There are many more reasons for youths are staying away from the ICYM.

I am not aware of the functioning of Leo Club. So, I consider myself not eligible to comment on Leo Club. But, I was a part of ICYM and know the functioning. Yes, the membership of ICYM over the years has come down. There could several reasons contributing to this. One major reason what i feel is, most of our youngsters after 10th/12th are headed for professional courses and stay in hostels away from Moodubelle. One of the pre-requisite of ICYM, attending regular meetings on Sundays, is not possible for these youths. There may be several other reasons like lack of guidance/support from parents/heads of the parish. Yes, I too wish that the membership of ICYM goes up and our youngsters get benefits of this wonderful movement call ICYM.

Mr. Pradeep, the question is not about catholic youth joining Leoclub. Sarcastic thing is some people who were speaking odd about Lions Club are been seen in Lions club. Finally those people getting civilized!!!. Hope atleast theiir children will join ICYM. Hope only prayer is not the main motto of Lions club, if such people join Lions club.
