We deliver a proven same gender year-round program experience that helps shape youth into honest, loving, Christ-centered, happy young men and women in a fun and constructive manner.

Our youth learn to respect and work with members of our larger community at the local, regional or international level regardless of creed, race or culture.

Boys and girls learn how to assume responsibility, leadership positions, to work hard within a diverse team and as individuals and to finish what they start. Activities are constructive with purpose and structure to develop skills and useable knowledge and experiences that will measurably help develop the all-around child to be the best that he or she can be.

A sense of God, right from wrong, love, service, charity, kindness is fully interwoven into their program experience from a Catholic Christian (blessed by Holy Seefaith perspective. Our youth have the opportunity to embrace the Sacraments of the Catholic Church within various FNE program activities such as weekend camps.

FNE like its home movement (Federation of Scouts of Europe – FSE) remains true to its values, principles, and ideals even if society ideals and values different than those of our FNE movement. Our leaders are all volunteers (with background checks) who devote their time and effort to protect, guide and lead the youth entrusted to our program through our dynamic and extraordinary challenging program.

All donations and funds raised directly support the youth, our volunteer leaders, and their program. We are a registered charity.

We are uniquely a uniformed movement that operates our program like a family with loveresponsibility, support, and encouragement. Come and learn more about us to see how your children and your whole family will benefit from Youth Movement.

A visit to St. Augustine Seminary

A seminary to many people is an unknown place full of mystery and intrigue. Conversely, even fewer people understand or appreciate what draws men into answering the Lord in the affirmative to enter the seminary to discern if the Lord is indeed calling them to the Priesthood.

True happiness is to discover one's vocation be it religious life, married life, a particular career or single life as to what the Lord is calling one to do with their life.

Why FNE?

Eleven Things That Happen When You Go To Confession More Regularly

In FNE we regularly encourage our youth members and their leaders to go to confession on a regular basis. In fact, over the years we have come to see our members avail themselves of the opportunity as often as possible.  This is especially true when our youth are in front of our Lord in Eucharistic Adoration and there is a Priest available.  Our youth especially then flock to confession in great numbers.  At our National Summer Camps when we have Priests in camp with us Father is busy hearing confession every morning before Mass.

The adventure of a lifetime – a Pilgrimage to Rome Italy

Day One – Thursday, April 6 and arrival Day 2 - Friday, April 7– departure for Rome Italy

Remember way back when as a child it felt as if it took a very long time for your birthday or Christmas to arrive or that summer vacation felt as it would last forever in the early dog days of August?  For our FNE Timber Wolves and Explorers, it felt that it would be forever before the big day for our departure to Rome Italy would finally arrive.

Together we washed many cars, raked leaves, offered for sale chocolate, cheese, offered pancake breakfasts, help pasta dinner movie nights and walked 20 kilometers and much more to help reduce the cost of the trip.

Meeting and camping with our Italian brother Timber Wolves and Explorers while exciting is a little challenging as our brothers have much more experience than we do in FNE.  Our Explorers carefully practiced morose code over and over again just to get it right.

The FNE Explorer Promise - A path to heaven by Explorer Nicholas Schau

God created all men for one purpose: to become saints. When the Jewish priests asked Our Lord which of the commandments was the greatest, He answered: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength” (Mat. 22; 37) and to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” (Mat. 22; 39)  These two commandments are a summary of the Ten Commandments. If every man were to obey these Commandments, they can become ordinary saints. The Federation of North-American Explorers (FNE) is a Catholic scouting program in which each Explorer takes a promise to abide by those two Commandments. The FNE Explorer Promise states: “On my honor, and with God’s grace, I promise to do my best, to serve God, the Church, my country, to help others at all times, and to obey the Explorer Law.” By keeping this Promise, one could certainly become an ordinary saint.

Article by Paul Ritchi - General Commissioner and Founder - FNE

FNE through its home movement the FSE offers a dynamic and challenging Christ centred Catholic faith youth program.  This well developed and proven method was developed by Venerable Father Jacques Sevin using many of the then techniques developed by Robert Baden-Powell the founder of the original Scout program.  Our program remains true to these FSE ideals and values of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

A valuable lesson on leadership for our youth leaders!
