Students from diverse religious backgrounds volunteer (on a Sunday) to help build houses for families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford one, and to participate in a structured interfaith dialogue. No special skills or experience are required, just a willingness to work with and learn about students from religiously diverse backgrounds.
