On July 2, 2003 the Religion News Service reported that "fifty Christian, Muslim, and Jewish high school students from the Middle East, South Africa, Northern Ireland and the United States committed to building understanding between peoples of different faiths are spending two weeks together in a groundbreaking leadership-training program... The students, ages 16-18, are participants in the Face to Face/Faith to Faith program, co-sponsored by Auburn Theological Seminary, a pioneer in multi-faith programming, in partnership with Seeking Common Ground, a Denver-based peace organization which has sponsored programs for youth in the Middle East and the United States for more than a decade... Face to Face begins with a two-week program (June 29-July 13) of inter- and intrafaith workshops where students gain skills in communication and dialogue. It takes place at a conference center in Holmes, N.Y., where the teens create an inclusive interfaith community through living and learning together."
