We offer 4 books each year, for each grade level. Each book contains 8 weeks of activities and 1 service project. Every year we update the books and series with new videos, activities, and content so there is new and relevant content for the teens.

What makes our curriculum unique?

 

Question of the Week

In Conquest, our curriculum is based off the questions teens have about God, their faith, the world, and themselves. The theme for each week is a question. The weekly activity in the team leader guidebooks gives the team leader a path to lead the team down and discover the answer to the question of the week.

 
First, they turn to the YOUCAT to find a solid catechetical answer to the question. Then the team leader goes through the 6 parts of the Conquest weekly meeting where they gain a better understanding of the question of the week.

Grounded in the Catechism

 

Hundreds of Games and Activities

Each weekly meeting has at least 1 game, activity, or experience; relevant video clips; a gospel reflection to find how Jesus answered the question, and at least 1 saint or story of someone who discovered the answer in their own life. The games are not listed on the charts.

 
The curriculum and guide for each weekly activity is in the team leader guidebooks and we also include a USB drive and access to the online resource center with hundreds of printouts and additional material that to help the team leader lead the meeting.

Hundreds of Downloads and Printouts

 

Adapted for Boys and Girls

On the curriculum maps, you will see that Conquest and Challenge have the same theme or question each week but sometimes the saints, games, and activities differ to work better with boys or girls.

 
The curriculum charts for the year 1 curriculum charts can be found on the following pages. The year 2 curriculum charts are similar but with different questions, saints, and gospels. We have a 2 year cycle so that it does not get repetitive for the teens. We also update and add new videos, activities, and material each year to the curriculum.

Never Repetitive, Always New

Virtue Centered Curriculum

 

Conquest has a virtue centered curriculum, encouraging the kids to put their faith into action each week. We take this 1 step further by encouraging the boys and girls to live a virtue of the month and get to know the life of a saint each month. Our saints and virtues of the month can be found in the Conquest and Challenge calendars which are included in all of our member, team leader, and club leader kits.
