“We, the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), are a community of the baptized. Submissive to the bidding of the Spirit we are resolved to carry out the Founder’s apostolic plan in the specific form of religious life: to be in the Church signs and bearers of the love of God for young people, especially those who are poor. By carrying out this mission we find our own way to holiness.” (Constitution art. 2)
Everywhere, we work for the integral development of the young through the education and evangelization that are center of our commitment. We believe that our total dedication for the young is our best reward for all humanity.
Founded by St. John Bosco, an Italian saint-educator of the XIX century, we are present in more than 130 countries.
