Saint John Bosco ( Italian: ; 16 August 1815 Giovanni Melchiorre Bosco – 31 January 1888 [1 ] ), known as [2 ] Don Bosco, was an Italian Roman Catholic priest, educator and writer of the 19th century, who put into practice the convictions of his religion, dedicating his life to the betterment and education of street children, juvenile delinquents, and other disadvantaged youth and employing teaching methods based on love rather than punishment, a method known as the Salesian Preventive System. A follower of the spirituality and philosophy of [3 ] Francis de Sales, Bosco dedicated his works to him when he founded the Salesians of Don Bosco. Together with Maria Domenica Mazzarello, he founded the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, a religious congregation of nuns dedicated to the care and education of poor girls. In 1876 Bosco founded a movement of laity, the Association of Salesian Cooperators, with the same educational mission to the poor. In [4 ] 1875 he published the . Salesian Bulletin [5 ] The [6 ] Bulletin has remained in continuous publication, and is currently published in 50 different editions and 30 languages. [5 ]

canonized as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Pius XI in 1934.
