Summary

In 2010, IFYC began a formal Alumni Program to ensure these interfaith leaders stay connected to IFYC and continue to advance interfaith cooperation throughout their lives. The program provides professional development support and connections to IFYC staff, other alumni, and current program participants. Given the commitment levels of our alumni, we believe the overwhelming majority of these interfaith leaders will go on to have some positive influence in society's approach to religious difference.

  • Networking and engagement opportunities: Consistent with best practices in alumni programs, IFYC engages alumni early and develops their excitement and pride in being connected to the organization. We facilitate a pipeline from on-campus programs into the alumni network. Over the next five years we will continue our programming for this network and add our first ever network-wide alumni gatherings and sustained alumni giving strategy.
