St. Dominic wanted to share his preaching work with people of all ages and conditions. The last general chapters emphasize that young people are not only passive subjects of our preaching but - and especially - partners of this same preaching.
The members of the Dominican Youth Movement (IDYM) have established and developed in several countries; live their belonging to the movement and the Dominican Family in various ways, in dialogue and permanent sharing with the culture of each country or region, but having the same desire to devote themselves to preaching (cf. ACG Caleruega 1995, 97C; ACG Bologna 1998, 161-164). The groups also experience prayer, study and fraternal life.
