Interfaith Youth Leadership Camp

July 10-14, 2024

The Des Moines Area Religious Council and The Comparison Project at Drake University are proud to co-host Interfaith Youth Leadership Camp July 10-14 at Drake University. High school students and recent graduates representing a diverse array of religious and cultural traditions and communities will learn about each other’s religious beliefs and practices (or lack thereof) and religious and cultural diversity in Des Moines more generally. Participants will create and share a digital story that expresses a personally meaningful faith experience, practice, or belief, visit with religious communities of Greater Des Moines, and discuss with each other the principles and practices of interfaith leadership. Application coming soon.
"I became more aware of the similarities between every system of beliefs and that all are built on love... there are so many ways to worship, and all are unique and valuable.” — Audrey Martin
