It takes a village to do Religious Diversity Journeys

LQ9A0327In 2013 Religious Diversity Journeys took 100 7th graders from 4 school districts to six houses of worship.

This month we start the 2016-2017 RDJ Year with:

16 school districts and private schools

38 middle schools

550 students

60 teachers

120 parents

24 journeys

Religious Diversity Journeys, which helps an increasing number of school communities rid themselves of the burden of bullying, could not happen without the support of our sponsors and the help of volunteers from two dozen houses of worship, and the participation of our schools. Please join us in thanking everyone who makes this transformative experience possible:
