HASC supports White House Initiative on Interfaith Leadership training for students and campus staff on October 22-24, 2010


On March 9, 2010, all the members of the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships presented the Council's report to the President and senior Administration officials.  One of the recommendations which we all agreed upon was enhancing interfaith collaboration on colleges and campuses. Interfaith Youth Core is taking the lead in providing the training.  Hindu American Seva Charities is supporting this effort and reaching out to the Hindu and Dharmic community to encourage participation.


HASC invites you to come to Interfaith Youth Core’s Interfaith Leadership Intensive to lead "Better Together," simultaneous training to equip campus staff to advance interfaith cooperation more broadly on campus as well as support student leadership for the campaign. 


On October 22-24, 2010, the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships will host a two-day intensive training facilitated by Interfaith Youth Core for 100 interfaith student leaders and 50 campus staff allies in Washington, D.C. The program is designed to equip interfaith student leaders with the skills to lead IFYC’s campaign for interfaith cooperation on campus, “Better Together.”  Student participants will learn how to speak out on the importance of interfaith cooperation on their campus, mobilize their communities to take action, and sustain their efforts to create a lasting impact on campus.  In a concurrent training track, campus staff will be equipped launch new or build on existing interfaith programming on campus as well as support student leaders in these initiatives.
