Our project

This website is an ongoing project by the Australian Cardijn Institute and the Joseph Cardijn Digital Library to host and display key documents and news reports relating to the history of the Cardijn movements in Australia, particularly the Young Christian Workers (YCW) and Young Christian/Catholic Students (YCS).

Our main source of information is the Trove website hosted by the National Library of Australia, which is indeed a treasure trove of information.

Other sources include state libraries as well as personal and movement archives.
