Raise Your Helping Hand

We are a non-profit Catholic youth movement, looking forward to a peaceful world by helping each other to join hands together to bring a better future for all children.

About Us

Our Beliefs

The group in Canada started in 1999, when a group of interested adults, youths, and their families elected to seek out a youth program that would support a number of Catholic ideals.

At the core of our movement are values that teach every participant what is means to become a fully formed man or woman. Our youth learn the importance of meeting life’s challenges with an increase sense of responsibility.


What Our Explorers Have to Say

“The FNE explorers were serving mass; they were very reverent and prayerful, and my dad was curious. And that was what started everything for me.”

Benjamin (FNE Patrol Chief, Toronto)

“When I went to Explorers, it was a whole new level of fun. There were a variety of [opportunities] to go to Confession, Adoration, Masses, Pilgrimages, and so on.”

Ian (FNE Patrol Chief, Toronto)
