The Kansas City Interfaith Youth Alliance

Empowering youth of all religious, non-religious, and spiritual identities to come together to establish a religiously pluralistic understanding and respect by serving the Kansas City community.

The Kansas City Interfaith Youth Alliance (KCIYA) is a collaborative program of individuals who want to change the conversation about religion.

May and June Events!

We are thrilled to announce that our youth podcast is now LIVE! Here you will gain insight on what inspires our youth to do interfaith work, what they have learned over time as a participant in our programming, and how being involved in interfaith work actually keeps them more grounded and curious about their own traditions.

We invite you to listen to our young people's stories. If you have words of support or affirmation that you would like to share with the youth, please e-mail Clare Stern at

If a youth is interested in recording their story please e-mail Clare Stern at
