Circles of Action: Experiential Interfaith & Social Justice Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is organized by Mosaic: Interfaith Youth Action.

In this workshop, facilitators from Mosaic: Interfaith Youth Action will demonstrate how experiential education is a key intervention for interfaith understanding and social justice, inviting participants to learn through sharing & activities. Attendees will have the opportunity to first be participants, playing games and engaging in the learning process first-hand, before facilitators elaborate on the pedagogy that structures this method, which draws significantly on David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model (experience plus reflection equals transference and new knowledge). This method—developed at Mosaic—focuses on centering and amplifying youth voices to harness the insights of experience through expert facilitation and guidance. This pedagogy affords both a safe and brave space for youth to engage in meaningful dialogue about their faith-based traditions, their multidimensional identities, and how these experiences and identities call them towards social action.

Please note that an additional registration step is required for this event. Please register for this event here to receive the Zoom meeting details.
