Amate House's mission is to develop young adult leaders into life-long social justice advocates who serve their communities while deepening their faith.  Amate House aspires to build a more just and loving society through leadership development for the Church and the world.

Amate House was established in 1984 as a leadership program for young adults by three seminarians from the Archdiocese of Chicago, along with other lay and religious men and women, with the objective of transformation through service. The founders chose the name “Amate,” the Latin imperative “to love,” because they envisioned a program in which young adult fellows would put “love into action,” and answer the call to holiness by providing support and leadership service to fulfill the needs of the city and the Archdiocese of Chicago.

In addition to a vocation of service, Amate House emphasizes the personal, professional, and spiritual development of its fellows, creating passionate leaders for our church and world through social justice leadership development.
