online interfaith dialogue training for 41 youth from 24 countries
Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Program / 202-776-9673Alumni of the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Program, funding by the US Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, applied to attend a 3 part online workshop on international dialogue. 41 finalists were selected, representing 24 countries, and will meet in small virtual groups on February 1st, 8th, and 15th for the training. They will be led by four YES alumni facilitators who participated in the YES Alumni Interfaith Harmony Workshop that was held in Morocco in March 2016. These alumni will be supported by YES program staff, but the event will be primarily alumni-driven and aims to support future interfaith programming in the participants' home communities.
