The Young Adult Committee has developed a series of professional development workshops that are geared toward our Young Adult Scholarship alumni, but are open to anyone who is interested in becoming involved with NAIN or interfaith work more broadly. Our January session featured NAIN affiliate Paul Chaffee, who spoke on the topic of “Fundraising and Grant Writing for Interfaith Programs.” The March session featured former Young Adult Scholar Sana Saeed and Jay Keller, Director of Outreach and Operations of Interfaith Alliance, on the topic of “Interfaith Youth Organizing and Empowerment.”
The Committee will hold a third and final session for this academic year on Wednesday, June 12, 7pm EST. The topic: “Working to bring different voices together: When a religion can expel its followers from interfaith operations.”
Katherine King, Drea Parker and Sana Saaed co-moderate the call sharing their experiences interacting with people of different faiths, with a Q&A session to follow after stories are shared, along with any resolutions observed.
