OUR APPROACH

“Education is a matter of the heart.” - Don Bosco


Don Bosco, a visionary of the 19th century, who loved the youth, provided them not only with shelter, but also education. His approach-the Preventive System of Education- kept the youth away from harm and evil. His education was directed towards self-discovery, the formation of character, holistic development and facing the challenges of life. The Preventive System is based on reason, spiritual well-being and loving-kindness.

Our works

Youth Focus

YOUTHFUL as young people together with their educators are true leaders in the educational development of the movement, owning responsibility as part of the unique pastoral plan for the local area.

Education

The presence of Don Bosco schools all over the world, associated with excellence and the holistic development of the vulnerable young, is one of the most consistent, significant and widespread moves in the field of education.

Education to Faith

We believe that this society had its beginning in simple catechism lesson. We believe that the education of religious dimension is central to personal development of the young. This dimension helps the young to pass the door of faith to discover the joy of faith.

Social Development

The Salesian Society encourages members to go back to their roots by focusing all their activity on the poor and abandoned young people and those who have major difficulties: “The world will always welcome us with pleasure, while we are directing our care at the poorest children who are intimidated by the society. This is our true wealth and no one will take it away from us” (Cf. General Chapter 27).

Parishes
