The Salesians Cooperators 

They are members, men or women, of the lay branch of the Salesian Family. Officially founded by Don Bosco in 1876, they constitute the true "Salesians in the world", who may be lay persons or secular priests without religious vows but bound by a promise. 

It is a vast international movement committed to a mission for the young and the poor according to the educative approach of Don Bosco. They are at the service of the local Church, in union and collaboration with the whole Salesian Family but with specific responsibilities.
