The Interfaith Center of New York is delighted to announce the 2015

Learning Together Interfaith Youth Fellowship Program

 

This spring, from March through June 2015, a group of New York City high school students is working with Interfaith Center staff to explore the religious diversity of the city’s schools, develop their writing and critical thinking skills, and ultimately publish their own original essays on religious diversity and education.

We are delighted to be working with students attending public, private, and faith-based high schools from throughout the city.  Our fellows share an interest in New York’s vibrant religious diversity – they are eager to share their views of that diversity with each other, and with broader audiences.

Why Learning Together?

Because New York high school students can learn a lot from their peers in diverse communities. Together we can develop a richer understanding of the vibrant, exciting city we love.

Because New York high school students need to make their voices heard, in order to create inclusive schools for students of every faith tradition, and none at all.  Educators and policy makers need to understand students’ experiences of religious diversity at school.

Because New York high school students are the future leaders of our city.  The Learning Together fellowship program will help young New Yorkers develop the writing and critical thinking skills they need to succeed in college, and far beyond.
