What is the GHACCYO?
The Galveston-Houston Archdiocesan Catholic Committee for Youth Organizations. This committee facilitates the NFCYM and AHG awards for youth in our archdiocese.
We are committed to fostering the Catholic spiritual development of members of Youth Organizations as designated by the Galveston-Houston Archdiocese authorized administrators.
Ready to Get Started?
YOUTH - All Youth wishing to pursue an award must work with an adult that is registered and trained by GHACCYO as a Mentor. Use the Mentor Directory to find a Mentor (if you don't have one already). Youth in high school must attend an orientation prior to starting an award.
ADULTS - Any adult planning to work with youth must register, have current Safe Environment status, and attend our award training classes to become a Mentor. See complete details on the What is a Mentor page.
MENTORS - In addition to working with youth on awards, Mentors are responsible for registering youth and submitting award applications.
