Our mission is to guide the formation of young adults interested in Dominican Life, relying on the knowledge, experience, and wisdom of Dominicans of all ages and dependent on the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We are young adults who are attracted by Jesus and His message and by the way of living out the Gospel preached by Saint Dominic.
Each chapter of DYA USA provides a different response to the needs of its location. Organized by young adults, with the help of experienced campus ministers, chaplains, religious, and other members of the Dominican Family, our basis is the four pillars of the Dominican Life: community, prayer, study, and preaching. Through prayer and reflection, the chapter searches to continue formation of the individual Dominican. Though unique in their walks of faith, these chapters seek the same goal through their Dominican lives: to live for Jesus Christ. Holding to the pillars, the message of Dominic has found a home within this generation in the United States of America.
