Upcoming IFYC Interfaith Leadership Institutes
You can learn to be a catalyst for social change by attending an Interfaith Leadership Institute (ILI)!
ILIs are four-day intensive workshops hosted by the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) that equip students and their campus allies to be movement builders for interfaith action. Join hundreds of organizers who are changing campuses through the Better Together campaign by bringing together people of all religious and non-religious traditions to change the world.
Bring together a campus team and apply now to join us for a summer ILI:
DePaul University, Chicago, IL - June 18th to 21st
University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA - July 16th to 19th
Application deadline: April 1
Join us for powerful training, relationship building, and inspiration. Become an interfaith leader who can:
- Mobilize large numbers of students to voice their values, engage with others, and act together;
- Change campus by raising the volume on interfaith cooperation; and
- Grow as a leader, building skills for life on campus and beyond.
Make your campus better together: Apply today!
