Under the Auspices of H.H. Pope Tawadros II

His Holiness Pope Tawadros II is cordially inviting 200 Coptic Youth from all Coptic Dioceses outside of Egypt to spend one week in Egypt together. The program will allow Coptic Youth from all over the world to experience a week of sharing, fellowship and service together. Youth will attend from Australia, Europe, Africa, South America, North America, and Asia!

This is the second conference of its kind with the first being held in 2018 to coincide with the Golden Jubilee of the Coptic Orthodox Churches establishment outside Egypt.

The area churches of Chicago & its affiliated regions (Midwest Copts) is invited to send 2 youth to attend the International Week for Coptic Youth.

This is a golden opportunity to connect with fellow Coptic Youth from all over the world.
