Our Interns are working on Children of the Earth hub project and Interfaith Leadership initiatives.
Children of the Earth Hub Project
Intern Elise Tran is continuing the Children of the Earth hub project started by Chloe Doan, including "Letters to Nepal," which continues the relationships with the Nepalese children Chloe visited in May 2011. Children of the Earth is a United Nations NGO dedicated to uniting young people around the world to create a peaceful and sustainable world. Chloe traveled to Nepal with members of Children of the Earth to do interfaith service and education projects, and Elise hopes to travel to Nepal to continue that work. Chloe spoke on her experiences at the Center's annual interfaith speaker event with Patrick McCollum fall 2011. (Click on the COE logo above for more information about COE.)
Intern Kaitlin Roth is the Center's liaison to the Interfaith Youth Core, an organization that provides interfaith leadership training to young people in the U.S. She is bringing her IFYC interfaith leadership training to the Center's interfaith service day initiatives. In addition, the Center produces interfaith leadership workshops for students, faculty, and staff on the model developed by the Interfaith Youth Core.
