The CFC Youth, the Youth for Christ movement in the United States, established a nationwide presence under the Couples for Christ in various dioceses in the United States. The movement gained popularity among overseas Filipino, and established a strong presence in the Filipino communities in the United States.
Youth for Christ was established in the Philippines in 1991 as a limited pilot program under Couples for Christ, which was then only an outreach to married couples. In 1993, Couples for Christ became an independent organization and created the CFC – Foundation for Family and Life, which led to the creation of Youth for Christ, Singles for Christ and Kids for Christ. Youth for Christ was not formally inaugurated until 1994. Youth for Christ also formed the nucleus of what would become the Gawad Kalinga Community Development Foundation, a Philippine-based poverty alleviation and nation-building movement. At present, Youth for Christ established presence in different universities and churches in the Philippines and spread to 68 provinces in the Philippines and over 100 countries worldwide.
