Interfaith Youth for Climate Justice
We’re filling up but we are still accepting applications for the 2013-2014 program. Apply ASAP!
Interfaith Youth for Climate Justice (IYCJ) is a FREE program for high school students active in local congregations. We are an interfaith learning community through which students gain the knowledge, skills and experience they need to be leaders for climate justice. Students engage in hands-on exploration of environmental issues, learn the environmental teachings of different faith traditions, participate in community service, plan and implement action projects and receive support in finding summer internships.
Interested in what the IYCJ experience is all about? Take a look!
I feel like I am participating in a diverse community that doesn’t judge me and accepts me for who I am and for all my beliefs, and this is what I really love about IYCJ. It shows you how different people from completely different backgrounds and beliefs can come together and strive for climate justice! ~IYCJ Participant, Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque
