Interfaith Youth Initiative Summer Fellowship

Interfaith Youth Initiative 2018 Summer Fellowship

“The Way Forward: Forging Common Ground Amidst Beautiful Difference”

August 1-7, 2018

Brandeis University, Waltham, MA

Applications are due May 1, 2018

IFYI Fellowship is an interfaith immersion experience for young leaders (ages 15-19) providing an opportunity to meaningfully engage together with important global and local issues through the lens of their different religious, ethnic, cultural, economic, social and political backgrounds. We shape Fellows through experiential and interactive facilitation and mentorship in leadership, bridge-building, mutual learning and service and social action. Program consists of community building activities, workshops, artistic expression, field trips, service, theological dialogue and reflection, and more! More than ever, we need the leadership and vision of youth grounded in the wisdom of our great faith traditions!

This is an interfaith program, and we recognize the need for Christians to get to know our neighbors of other faith traditions. We welcome and honor our participants’ faiths and strive to be a place where one’s faith can be expressed fully and authentically.

The IFYI Summer Fellows program is offered at no cost to selected fellows, with lodging (separated by gender) and full meals provided.
