Named after Catholic Charities’ President and CEO, Monsignor John J. Enzler, the Enzler Society is a group of young individuals, ages 21-35 years old, who are dedicated to raising awareness about Catholic Charities’ mission and vital work as the most comprehensive and wide-reaching non-profit social services agency in the Washington, DC region through volunteer services and community networking.
What We Do
Our mission is to engage and encourage young professionals in the D.C. metro area to make a positive impact on the lives of those most in need.
We hope to provide opportunities for our members to contribute and grow. Where our members can see the value of their hard work and dedication.
Previously, one Saturday a month we worked directly with the Youth Transitional Program (YTP) — a former transitional shelter service that provided up to nine months of service to 24 homeless men between 18-24. In partnership with YTP, we worked with clients on professional development, financial literacy, help with job applications and resumes, and took clients on outings across Washington, D.C.
Throughout the year, we hosted donation drives, Christmas and Easter parties with YTP clients, and hosted quarterly networking events for our members.
Our chaplain is Father Mark Ivany, who provides spiritual guidance and support to the group.
The Enzler Society is always looking for new members-at-large to join our organization. Members also have the option of filling chair positions within the leadership committee throughout the year. Currently, we are recruiting for a Gala Chair and a Service Chair.
