Saint Mary’s Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership recently received an Educator Curriculum Award from Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) to promote interfaith leadership development opportunities. Specifically, the $500 award will support the implementation and promotion of IFYC’s We Are Each Other’s: Interfaith Leadership 101 curriculum on the Winona Campus.
“This training aligns with the mission of Saint Mary’s of fostering lives of leadership and service. In our ever-increasing religiously and culturally diverse world, interfaith leadership is needed more than ever,” said Chris Bobier, Ph.D., associate director of the Hendrickson Institute and assistant professor of philosophy.
According to IFYC, the curriculum covers the vision, knowledgebase, and skill sets of interfaith leadership, alongside personal reflection opportunities and aims to equip young people to engage in acts of interfaith cooperation, anti-racism, and service with their communities. The curriculum is online and self-paced, ideal for the current reality of the pandemic.
