Faith Zone Ally Training – Friday, April 13, 2018 12pm – 3pm

Faith Zone is an award-winning training workshop designed to promote spiritual and religious literacy and dialogue. NYU students, faculty, and staff members can participate this training to become Faith Zone certified. Lunch will be served.

Click here to RSVP.

Faith Zone Trainings (FZT) are a resource for students, faculty, and staff on campus who desire innovative and participatory training, contextualized resources, and honest dialogue about religion & spirituality. Based upon the Safe Zone model which is used to educate groups about the LGBTQ community, these FZT sessions take a dual approach that integrates theory and practice.

In doing so, FZT engages participants in activities which will increase religious literacy and offer practical tools for learning about religion and spirituality.Topics covered include reflecting on personal experiences with faith and spirituality, examining the global and local context for various religious traditions represented at NYU, as well as discussing tips for creating a safe and welcoming environment in one’s office, residence hall, student group or classroom.

Participants will receive a certificate of completion and placard to display verifying the completion of the training
