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.

Hannah Minks / Program Manager

Hannah Minks, Student and Alumni Leadership Manager, develops programs and communication tools that speak to the needs of both students and IFYC alum. Hannah received her B.A. in Theology from Dominican University and is currently pursuing an M.A. in Theology at Chicago Theological Seminary. Having taught Catholic theology at the high school level for a handful of years, Hannah brings her education experience to a variety of spaces at IFYC in both curriculum development and training capacities. Hannah also brings personal experience to her position having been through many of IFYC’s programs as an undergrad student and alum, most recently the Germanacos Fellowship. It was through this fellowship that she began her project 10 Dorothy Days, a series of events that combined the idea of a social with community service so folks could get to know one another across lines of difference while serving the common good, all taking root in Hannah’s personal inspiration from Catholic figure Dorothy Day. Apart from her 9-5 at IFYC, you can find Hannah reading philosophy books or watching the Real Housewives of New York City.
