Bridges connects young people who are involved in the work of their faith communities, bringing them together to consider how their faith calls them to action in interfaith dialogue.
Cohorts of 3-4 geographically connected Houses of Worship gather in-person and on-site during Fall, Winter, and Spring meetings. Youth commit to participate in these three events, run by Mosaic staff, developing connections and community across religious traditions. Over the course of the year, youth develop skills in interfaith literacy, communication and active listening, and interfaith dialogue. Bridges not only further connections across communities, but deepens the community already cultivated within religious communities.
Our theme for the 2021-2022 school year is perspective.
Houses of Worship and Youth Group Leaders
Bridges cohorts are being formed for the 2022-2023 school year. If you are interested in having your community participate in this transformative program, email Megan, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mosaic is committed to working with every community at their level of financial capacity. Bridges is made possible through building robust partnerships with Houses of Worship and community organizations, some of whom join in support through monetary donations and others through logistical support. Mosaic will work with your community to ensure your youth can participate in this transformational program regardless of financial constraints.
The Bridges program through Mosaic Interfaith Youth Action has allowed my youth group to consider their faith and identity in the larger context of their community and the world. Thanks to the excellent facilitators at Mosaic, we were able to have important conversations within our group and in combination with other youth groups at our meetings throughout the year. Youth from all over the area were able to laugh, play, reflect, and learn together. It was a rich tapestry of interfaith conversation and bridge-building. My kids love Bridges!Genna Hosterman Acting Associate Minister at Hancock Church
