Formalised in 2005, the IRO Youth Wing serves youths and young adults aged 18 to 40 from different religions; Hindu, Jew, Zoroastrian, Buddhist, Taoist, Jain, Christian, Islam, Sikh & Baha’i. The group was refreshed in 2019, during IRO’s 70th year, with the following objectives:
- forging friendship among young people from across different religions
- catalysing conversations about religion and inter-religion harmony
- facilitating interfaith and inter-belief dialogue
Members of the Youth Wing attend IRO events, and also attend informal dialogues with topical spotlights on inter-religious questions, as well as talks by youth members about their own experiences.
