About FIMCAP

 
FIMCAP is an international, non-profit umbrella organisation for Catholic, Christian and other youth organisations. Its 31 member organisations are based in 28 countries. Every three years, they gather for the General Assembly.

The letters stand for «Fédération Internationale des Mouvements Catholiques d’Action Paroissiale» (French for “International Federation of Catholic Parochial Youth Movements“).

FIMCAP was founded in 1962 and is recognized as an official Catholic organization by the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life.

FIMCAP is a voluntary based organization. With exception of the Secretary General, all tasks are done by volunteers and all positions are voluntary positions. FIMCAP aims for gender balance in all its bodies.
