Hearts and Hands community service project 2013–In November of 2013 the IYCOC helped make hygiene kits for the Newport Mesa-Irvine Interfaith Council’s “2013 Hearts & Hands Program

Hearts and Hands is one of my favorite IYCOC activities. It is an opportunity to not only contribute to our community by completing our care package projects, but to interact with a community that is just as passionate about community service and giving back. This year we completed over 100 care packages to be distributed to both the Sunday Dinner at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and to Family Forward at Irvine. We look forward to participating in the next Hearts and Hands events in 2014.”    Keerit Kohli IYCOC Member

Big Sunday 2013

MAY 2013- In an effort to take interfaith activity beyond dialogue, IYCOC teens were able to use Big Sunday as a platform to give back to their community while getting to know teens of different faiths on a more intimate and social level. The food drive was very successful, with over 80 pounds of food collected at a local grocery store in Tustin, California!

TIDE Conference 2013

MAY 2013- This year, with a generous grant from the Shinnyo-en Buddhist Foundation, four members of IYCOC were able to take the message of teen interfaith dialogue to Boston, Massachusetts, at the Teenage Identity and Diversity Education (TIDE) conference. There they learned much about leadership and were able to share the mission of IYCOC with teens from across America. Initiatives and opportunities like these continue to inspire IYCOC members to broaden the scope of their outreach and partner with other organizations to create a national impact.
