Join Together. Make an Impact.
You know what’s better than a young leader working for an indivisible society? Thousands of young leaders working for an indivisible society, supporting each other every step of the way.
IFYC’s student network is the “core” in Interfaith Youth Core. Members come from every kind of faith, worldview, tradition, and background. They represent every kind of college and university. They do interfaith work for different reasons. What unites them is a shared vision for a society where different people can bridge divides and find common values to build a shared life together.
When you join the network, you’re not just signing up for a newsletter. You’re participating in a community, where members share ideas, collaborate on strategy, and help each other succeed. Network members also recieve exclusive opportunities and experiences to enrich their leadership. Most of all, members become part of a larger community working for positive change and making history one campus at a time.

Meet Our Student Leadership Team
Brian Anderson, Program Manager, works with our grantees to support the execution of interfaith campus programs and events. Brian has a B.A. in Religious Studies and Psychology from Butler University, an M.A. in Student Development Administration from Seattle University, and an M.A. in Pastoral Studies from Loyola University Chicago. At IFYC, you’ll find him connecting with campus partners to overcome challenges and capitalize on successes with their interfaith initiatives. When not at IFYC, you’ll find Brian being a husband and father and an active "bridge builder" in his local community. As a young Catholic, the spiritual writings of Thomas Merton and Thich Nhat Hanh inspired Brian to social activism and bridge building, and today, Brian sees building relationships across religious difference as critical to interfaith leadership
Hannah Minks, Program Manager, develops and trains IFYC curriculum, and shares stories of interfaith leadership. Hannah received her BA in Theology and is currently earning her MA in Religious Studies. She comes to her role having taught theology at the high school level for a handful of years, always through the lens of pluralism. Most of her time at IFYC is spent developing curriculum, training students, and communicating with the network. Hannah reads, kickboxes, and DJs in her free time. Her passion for interfaith work is fueled by her Catholic identity. She believes that participating in a vision for how diverse indivudals can co-create a healthy civic space is an inherently spiritual endeavor--one that follows in the footsteps of awe-inspiring figures like Saint Catherine of Siena and Dorothy Day.
