At the end of the meeting, the participants were unanimous : it is urgent for the whole Institute to support the AUs in offering them a guide with an itinerary which helps them review the current MYM projects in the light of the document, especially those which have greater experience in work with youth. There was equal consensus on another point : it is advisable to develop a proposal of education in the faith process for the youth groups in the AUs which have just begun the work within the MYM.
