We are now closed. Many thanks to all of the youth, parents, Advisors and supporters who helped make our program a success.
Interfaith Youth for Climate Justice (IYCJ) is a youth development organization for students active in local religious congregations. We are an interfaith learning community that operates programs, facilitates workshops and hosts service days and events. Students who participate in IYCJ 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.

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
