Združenie kresťanských spoločenstiev mládeže (ZKSM) – Association of Youth Christian Communities is a civic organization with a long history and a lot of experience with youth work focussing on effective use of leisure time.
Our Mission and Objective
We unite youth Christian communities in order to support, build up and lead them into cooperation, and thus have a positive influence on the society.
Our vision is that in each town in Slovakia there will be a youth community bringing the Kingdom of God into all spheres of the society. This vision is conveyed also by our slogan, "A community also in your town".
- spiritual and personal growth of young people
- networking of community leaders
- civic participation, volunteering, preservation of historical monuments
Our roots date back to the 1940s, when the first youth communities were formed in Slovakia on the initiative of Prof. Kolakovič. The first activities of our organization took place under the auspices of Cardinal Korec and the "underground church" in the 1980s.
