This resource, prepared by the Aspen Institute Justice & Society Program and the George Washington Institute for Religious Freedom, describes eight real-life scenarios in which religious diversity creates challenges in youth development settings. It deals with topics such as outreach to religious minority groups; inclusive holiday celebrations; discussions about religion in educational settings; and potential tensions between values such as religious identity and inclusion, or accommodation of minorities and integration.
