Interfaith Youth Core
Content and Editorial Manager
IFYC’s mission is audacious--make interfaith cooperation a norm. We live at a time when people of different faith and philosophical backgrounds are interacting with greater frequency than ever before. We have a choice-we can perpetuate the conflicts that unravel our progress, or engage religious diversity in meaningful ways that pull together the colorful strands in our civic tapestry. We choose to engage religious diversity by focusing on three main goals:
- Nurturing and networking a critical mass of interfaith leaders, focusing on college students, and building an alumni base committed to a lifetime of interfaith leadership.
- Building capacity for sustainable interfaith cooperation on college campuses nationwide and advancing the field of interfaith studies.
- Changing the narrative from the inevitability of religious conflict to the possibility of interfaith cooperation by elevating the voices of interfaith leaders.
