The International Coordination of Young Christian Workers (ICYCW or CIJOC in French) was founded in 1986. The ICYCW is an international non-profit organization of the Catholic Church. It is officially recognized by the Holy See through the Pontifical Council for the Laity since 1989, as an International Association of the Faithful with private legal personality, according to the Code of Canon Law of the Catholic Church.
It coordinates 60 National Movements of the YCW. See the list of the National Movements running this International coordination here : Y.C.W around the world – CIJOC ICYCW.
