About Better Together
Better Together is a national movement of students that are bringing together people of different religious and non-religious backgrounds to work toward a common goal. It's a network for students, by students - a place where you can come together and work to make interfaith cooperation a priority on your campus.
Meet the Movement
It basically boils down to this: you can do interfaith work on your campus alone, or you can do it with the help and support of other students who share your passion for pluralism. Better Together is IFYC's way of making a space for you to work with other people on your campus and across the country .

- Lead and empower your campus to make interfaith cooperation a priority
