Interfaith Youth Core

Purpose: The purpose of the Interfaith Youth Core at Wofford will be to provide an open forum for discussion along with community work amongst different religious and faith traditions.

Mission Statement: According to its website, "Wofford College is committed to providing quintessential undergraduate education within the context of values inquiry." Therefore, the IFYC's activities (such as interfaith community service and dialogue) will enhance Wofford students' "pursuit of knowledge and the creative search for truth." The IFYC (from ifyc.org) "builds mutual respect and pluralism among young people from different religious traditions by empowering them to work together to serve others." The goals of the Wofford branch of IFYC would be to enhance students' perception and understanding of pluralism, while also creating an ethic of service.
