Feedback Tells Project Interfaith We are on the Right Track

Project Interfaith has received positive feedback from those in our community who have used our educational programs and products in their contexts. This feedback tells us that the intended outcomes of our program offerings are being met! We provided three testimonials in our fall appeal letter. Now hear from two more.

Ricardo and Monica quotes"Through brave conversations Project Interfaith shares knowledge that liberates us from both unintentional and conscious bias. There is incredible potential for all of us to raise our awareness, understand the other and bring a nurturing spirit to the spaces where it is most needed."  
Ricardo Ariza M.S.W., Office of Multicultural Affairs at Creighton
University / Catholic Migrant Farmworker Network

"The reaction of my students was much stronger than I thought. Stronger in a positive way. They truly seemed hungry for this kind of dialogue ... Without a doubt [the RavelUnravel Curriculum] has been probably one of the richest aspects of my class, not only for my students based on the feedback they’ve given me, but for me professionally to see the change in thinking and willingness to ponder ... when provided the forum and the structure to have those conversations ... It’s just been a rich and very enriching experience for my students that I think they would have missed if we hadn’t have included it.”
Monica White - Assistant Professor of General Education, Clarkson College

Project Interfaith Teases Its Newest Product Offering
After all this talk of how effective our programs and products are, we thought it might be a good idea to actually talk about our programs and products. You are Smartphone App Teaser Imageprobably already aware of, RavelUnravel Curriculum, RavelUnravel Campaigns, and our Conversation Kits. So we thought we'd tease you with one of our upcoming offerings ...

What are we saying with the picture to the right? Are we going into the mobile business? Are we going into the hand-modeling business? The short answer to those two questions is "no." For now, all we will say is this next offering is a natural progression for us based on our existing products and programs.

Want to learn more? Only one way to find out. Stay tuned to the Project Interfaith e-newsletter for additional teasers and updates.
