Youth Can Unite the World

This morning Robin Roberts of Good Morning America interviewed Eboo Patel, founder of the Interfaith Youth Core, and seven young members of the group. Youth participate in volunteer projects which help others, and then discuss the shared values which inspire this service. Individual uniqueness and diversity is valued; participants often find that their own faith identity is strengthened in the process, and they also learn to know and appreciate others who may follow a different tradition. Eboo Patel states the vision which inspired him to create the group: "I believe in the power of young people to change the world, and I believe that we need to find bridges between our different faiths".
