Interfaith Service Corps members among the diverse young leaders who will work together toward significant change

Students, faculty and staff from Butler University, DePauw University, Franklin College, IUPUI, University of Indianapolis, and Valparaiso University attended a large scale training designed to teach students how to speak out on the importance of interfaith cooperation on their campus, mobilize their communities to take action, and sustain their efforts to create a lasting impact on campus.  Watch the video

From October 22-26, 2010, the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) hosted a Student Leadership Institute for 200 interfaith student leaders and 100 campus staff allies in Washington D.C.  Representatives from over 130 campuses from across the country attended.  Part of the training included a meeting at the White House, hosted by the White House Office on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. 

Among the students traveling from colleges and universities across the nation, will be nine students from Indiana, eight of whom are part of the Interfaith Service Corps pilot program developed in partnership between Indiana Campus Compact (ICC) and the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC).

Over the past several months, religious issues have dominated the news cycle.  IFYC believes that “we need to see concrete illustrations of religious tolerance and interfaith understanding, and believe there are no better examples than diverse young leaders working together for the common good”.
