New Vision Partners leads interfaith programs in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Long Beach. Over 100 students from 17 different faith backgrounds were selected for these competitive leadership programs to build conflict resolution skills, relationships and live their faith through service work.
Students participated in leadership building activities and visited numerous houses of worship including a Sikh Gurdwara, Jewish Temples, a Catholic Cathedral, a Latter Day Saints Chapel, and a Mosque. Participants also listened to a panel of service and faith leaders. In addition to interfaith and leadership activities, youth were involved in different service projects. Los Angeles participants volunteered with Union Rescue Mission to serve 700 people on Skid Row while our Long Beach participants cleaned up one square mile of public beach space.
