Several hundred people from many European countries are already engaged in the preparations. In 2019, thousands of voluntary helpers will be on hand to ensure that the event runs smoothly. The many who are involved will be joined by others wishing to help in making the International Youth Convention a success.

The Youth Convention poses an enormous organisational and financial challenge. Total costs for the weekend will run into several million Euros, in meeting the costs of catering for and accommodating the 30,000 or so participants, their guardians and helpers, or to cover financing of the exhibition premises, the Arena, technical, logistic resources, assembling and dissembling and security, to name just a few.

Not everyone is able to be there and help out, but each and everyone can add his and her support – with a donation toward the first International Youth Convention in the history of the New Apostolic Church.
