Pillars of Interfaith Philadelphia's Youth Programs

Interfaith Engagement

We provide a safe environment for youth of diverse faith traditions to come together, break down stereotypes, share their distinctive practices and beliefs, and learn common values.

 

From sharing ritual objects to touring faith communities to question and answer sessions with religious leaders, youth learn about other religions while strengthening their own religious identities.

Relationship Building

The program aims to strengthen communities on individual, congregational, and regional levels.

 

It strives to highlight key elements of healthy development for youth, such as: feeling empowered, being valuable resources for the community, forming supportive relationships with peers and adult mentors, and building positive identities.

Creative Reflection

A critical and constant component of the program is helping youth develop tools for integrating their experiences and expressing what those experiences mean for them as young people of faith engaged in their communities. Creative reflection takes on many forms including poetry, journaling, and collage.

Service Learning

We work with social service organizations which address a social justice issue or community problem. Through service-learning at the particular site, participants put their interfaith values into action. 

 

Interfaith Philadelphia's youth programs integrate meaningful service with focused learning and engagement with constituents so youth can examine the complexity of societal ills.
