How the EQAccess™ System Works
We’ve designed EQAccess™ to be flexible and adaptable, scaling to serve parishes of all sizes. With materials for both experienced youth ministers and those new to the field, you’re sure to find something that works for you. And with new editing tools that we’re building into the platform, you’ll be able to tailor our new sessions to suit your youth group’s needs.
Ways to Use EQAccess™
Prep for Sunday NightLooking for something for this week’s youth group meeting? Search through our library of hundreds of fully-designed sessions, Bible studies, and retreats. You’ll find sessions built to support the full liturgical calendar and on a wide variety of other topics, with new sessions being released regularly.
Build Your ProgramNot sure where to begin? Start with Equipped for Life, your roadmap to guiding young Catholics on their faith journey. This new 4-year program, included in your subscription to EQAccess™, is designed to be used over the course of a young person’s high school career, moving them from an initial encounter with Christ to an adult understanding of the Catholic faith, and laying the foundation for a life-long relationship with God.
Download Resources for Youth Programs of All SizesUsing just the Session Outline—which contains a materials checklist, facilitator’s notes, and scripts for readings and prayer—will provide an engaging experience suitable for most youth groups. But many sessions also contain ideas for extending the session, as well as printable handouts, media, or games to help you bring the session to life. And with built-in editing tools on the website, you’ll be able to tailor each of our new sessions to suit your youth group.
New sessions we release will also come with an instructional video, with real youth ministers showing you how they set up and providing tips for leading successful session.
