You need not have experience in interfaith cooperation or expertise about diverse faiths to lead this program. You simply must be open to doing research and saying "I do not know;" willing to admit and explore your own "baggage" regarding religions; and excited about the possibility of working with youth to equip them to live in today's diverse world. If you want to brush up on religious literacy or stories of interfaith work before you begin, check out Beliefnet, the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance, and the Interfaith Youth Core Bridge-Builders program for helpful resources.
An essential part of this program is youths' experience of leading and participating in interfaith service. You will need the time and capacity to commit to organizing an interfaith service event in addition to preparing for and leading eight sequential workshops. Finally, you must be willing to reach out to help the youth find and forge interfaith partnerships outside your congregation.
