(International) "Interfaith Service
Projects" - Religious Youth Service (RYS).
www.rys.netA project of the International
Interreligious Federation for World Peace (IIFWP).
"Initiated in 1985, RYS promotes the twin ideals of interreligious
harmony and public service. Youth leaders of various faiths and
nationalities come together for social service projects to serve
communities in need. As they offer their time, labor, sweat and
tears to help others, the youth develop deep friendships that
transcend their religious and cultural differences. RYS believes
that serving others is the key to interreligious peace."
(U.S.)THE INTERFAITH YOUTH CORE http://www.ifyc.org "The Interfaith Youth Core is a youth-led,
Chicago-based international interfaith organization. We bring
youth from different faith communities together to engage in social
action projects and share how their different faiths inspire social
justice....The Interfaith Youth Core seeks to nurture a new generation
of compassionate global leaders by engaging youth from different
faith communities in a dynamic process of intercultural encounter,
social action and interfaith reflection....Interfaith Youth Core
programs operate on a multi-layered model that has been developed
through real-world action projects combined with academic research."
The recent National Day of Interfaith Youth Service brought together
thousands of young people of many faiths all over the United States
and elsewhere. They also served food to the homeless, cleaned
up parks, and built new homes for low income residents.
