Alumni Program

Nearly 1,000 alumni are part of a growing movement of young leaders building interfaith cooperation around the country.

We set a big goal for ourselves at IFYC: to make religious pluralism a social norm within the course of a generation. We believe our alumni are the interfaith leaders who will make it happen. And we’re here to support them along the way.

The facts:

  • 96% of alumni in our network are applying their interfaith leadership skills in their personal and/or professional lives.
  • 93% of working alumni have found their interfaith experiences useful on the job.

“What do you love?”

“What brings you joy?”

I was excited and nervous.
