The Recollect Augustinian Youth (RAY) or Juventud Agustina Recoleta (JAR) is the youth organization of the Order of Augustinian Recollects.
The first General Chapter of the Augustinian Recollection was held in Madrid from November 19 to 30, 1621. The Congregation then had four provinces. The fourth, under the patronage of St. Nicholas of Tolentine which eventually became a missionary province, had houses in the Philippine Islands. On November 28, 1998 the 52nd General Chapter held in Monachil, Granada, Spain, approved the creation of the eighth Province of the Order consisting of the erstwhile Vicariate of the Philippines of the Province of St. Nicholas of Tolentine including 2 houses in Taiwan and the mission of Sierra Leone. On November 30, 1998, the 52nd General Chapter approved the Acts to legislate the various aspects of the life of the new province, the Province of St. Ezekiel Moreno.
