Welcome to OMAEC's official web site

World Organization of Former Students of Catholic Education


The Youth Forum is a meeting space for reflection and participation that OMAEC is promoting so that young alumni of Catholic Education can share their concerns, experiences and creativity to support a fairer world, with greater solidarity.

Since 2021, Marco Russo (Italy), Santiago Durini (Argentina) and recently Mariano Olivera (Argentina) have collaborated as directors of the Secretariat of the Youth Forum.

According to Article 16 of the OMAEC By Laws, the youth representative is a full member of the Executive Council, with voice and vote.

The youth representatives have been appointed by the member organizations or by the OMAEC Correspondents; as of the date of this note we have representation from:
