Got Questions?

  • What exactly do you want me to do?

    We want you to share something, then learn something. Specifically, tell us about a value you hold that promotes interfaith cooperation or inspires you to do good in the world. Then, learn about someone else's values and worldviews!

  • What else can I do?

    Have a conversation with someone of a different religious or non-religious background. Go on a site visit to a local religious site. Or simply visit our submission wall to see what others have to say.

  • What does it mean to participate?

    It means you can submit your value above, plan to attend an event, or join our conversation on social media by attending our TweetChats or adding our Twibbon filter to your Facebook photo. There are lots of ways to participate and they'll all count toward the 5,000 person goal to support the IRC.

Get Involved in the Interfaith Movement

We’re Interfaith Youth Core and we believe that our different faiths and philosophies can unite us around the common good. Conflict, hunger, homelessness, human rights, climate change and more...young people are the ones that are going to tackle these problems. How are we going to succeed if we can’t work with others who orient around religion differently? Our mission is to make interfaith cooperation a social norm by helping young leaders bridge divides and work for good, not in spite of their differences, but because of the values they share.

Achieving our mission won't happen in just one day. The year-round, student-led Better Together network is one way young people in this movement are making it happen. Students who are a part of the Better Together network organize their peers from different religious and non-religious backgrounds to take action on key social issues in their communities such as literacy, hunger, and homelessness. You can join them today. Go to ifyc.org/bettertogether to learn how!
