Interfaith Youth Core Is Bridging the Religious Divide

By Matt Swenson, July 11, 2016

Interfaith Youth Core may be the highest-profile effort to stop the religious divide in the United States. Founded by renowned author and speaker Eboo Patel, the organization is at the forefront of a movement known as pluralism. The idea: Turn to America’s next generation of leaders to reinforce how faith can connect people of all religions. Even President Obama has signaled the importance of addressing the complex cultural issue.

IFYC trains undergraduate students who then work with their peers on their own campuses to move beyond today’s divisive norm. The group creates a network of leaders through on-campus sessions and institutes (Chicago will host one in August and Atlanta in January 2017). The hope is if these young people can lead the way to inclusivity on multiple college campuses, religious diversity may be steadily embraced in general society.
