The goals for the event are that participating students will:

• Learn about a religious tradition/belief system with which they are unfamiliar, helping them to gain understanding and dispel stereotypes.

• Encounter a safe environment where they can become aware of, and dialogue about, issues of religious intolerance that have occurred in their schools and communities.

• Become more aware of healthy ways of responding to conflict in order to better promote understanding.

• Learn some fundamental guidelines and etiquette to help them interact respectfully in a pluralistic society.
