It Starts with Knowing

When you look around you, there’s a good chance you’ll see religious and worldview diversity. Wherever that diversity exists, you’re also pretty likely to see some misunderstanding, tension, and conflict, too.

We’re here to help you navigate that. Every day IFYC offers ways to build your interfaith literacy and learn to connect with different people around common values. Whether you’re interested in exploring other worldviews or want to launch projects on your campus to advance interfaith cooperation, we offer the opportunities for you to build core skills and knowledge.

Opportunities include everything from online guides and resources, to forum discussions and online small groups, to in-person trainings on your campus and around the country.
