Since inception, the youth department has had five different coordinators from 1999 namely; Rev. Fr. Werunga, Ms. Leah Wairicu, Mr. Boniface Mmen, Mr. Silas Sum, Mr. Stanley Siakilo, and currently Rev. Fr. Joseph Odongo.
This classification of the youth later demanded for the introduction of two more movements based on the different needs of different groups. The YIP was further sub-divided into two i.e. the YIP and the Catholic Young adults (CYA) while the YCS gave birth to the Catholic Students Association (CSA).
