The Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), also known as the Society of St. Francis de Sales, is an international organization of men dedicated full time to the service of young people, especially those who are poorer and disadvantaged. Youth resource Development through education and evangelization is the focus of all their concern — because they believe that their total dedication to the young is their best gift to humanity.

Founded by St. John Bosco, an Italian saint-educator of the nineteenth century, the SDBs are in 131 different nations. The Salesians live in communities that are actively engaged in the world of youth. They are members of the Church and work in harmony with its teachings. Prayer and obedience to the Spirit of God are the foundation of their service. They strive to make Don Bosco’s dream a reality and to inculcate his unique style and charism. They live out their consecration to God through the three vows: poverty, chastity, and obedience. Their pledge to young people is to deepen their credibility as ‘signs and bearers of God’s love’ to each of them. Their preferential option is to work among the poor and abandoned youth of society. Becoming ‘signs and bearers of God’s love is their path to holiness — a journey each of them has chosen to make with the young! Don Bosco, drawing his inspiration from the zeal and goodness of St. Francis de Sales, gave them the name “Salesians.” They are recognized in the Catholic Church, since 1st March 1869, as a clerical religious institute of pontifical right, dedicated to apostolic works.

Education and evangelization are at the center of the Salesian mission. The pastoral-educative service that they want to carry out is directed to the integral development of the person. The first and principal beneficiaries of their mission are the young, especially the poorest of them, young workers and those preparing themselves for work, and apostolic vocations; in view of these, they work amongst common folk with special attention to lay evangelizers, family, social communication, and those not yet evangelized. The activities and works by means of which the Salesians carry out their mission, depend on the needs and situations of the people whom they serve. They carry out activities and works in which it is possible to promote the human and Christian education of the young.
