News and Events for 2014-2015

PBS national-television project “America’s Generations With Chuck Underwood”. ThinkTV Channel 16 will broadcast the three new shows that represent the original vision for this project: a full hour on a single generation. Here’s the schedule on ThinkTV Channel 16:

Sunday, June 15, at 4:00PM: The Boomers: Forever Young.

Sunday, June 22, at 4:00PM: Gen X: 59,000,000 Armies Of One.

Sunday, June 29, at 4:00PM: Millennials: The New World.

The DVDs of these three shows, plus a fourth show – an earlier show on the Silent Generation (which was on the air from 2008 to 2010) - are available for purchase through Chuck Underwood’s Miamisburg firm’s website: www.genimperative.com/17.html Around the country, people are saying the DVD’s create lots of fascinating conversation with friends and family. They make wonderful and unique gifts and businesses use them to train their employees about generational differences.

After viewing them, if you would like to email a quick “thank-you” to ThinkTV for broadcasting them (in public television, viewer feedback means A LOT), you can email them at: Mservices@thinktv.org

Engaging Religious Diversity. Interfaith on Campus: Free Resources. In an increasingly diverse nation, college campuses are playing a larger role in preparing globally aware and informed leaders. Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) believes that creating a space where students of diverse religious and non-religious identities positively engage with one another is a part of that role.

In an effort to provide you with the right tools and resources to engage interfaith cooperation, IFYC is excited to announce the launch of our free summer webinar series and interfaith resource library.

For more information on the interfaith movement on campus and how to get involved, please click here or email us at updates@ifyc.org.
