Abstract: Youth-development is critical to the survival of any society. Since they constitute over 60 percent of most societies, their role is indispensable. This paper went in search for a platform to help the youth of Bauchi Diocese to reach their potentials. Through the qualitative method, the researcher used the Uses and Gratification theory to examine citizen journalism and discovered that it is an indispensable tool in engendering youth empowerment in the Diocese. It recommended organising citizen journalism classes and creating Parish Communications Committees as ways of empowering the youth and giving them a better voice in the Diocese and beyond.
