A Common Word Among the Youth

ACWAY FELLOW SPOTLIGHT:
Why is interfaith action important?

Skyler Oberst is called by his faith to love his neighbors.

A millennial interfaith expert, Skyler has been working with civic and community leaders in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States for more than ten years.

Studying anthropology, philosophy and religion while at university, Skyler has contributed to the Millennial Values project at the Berkeley Center for Peace, Politics and Religion at Georgetown University, and worked as a research associate for the Pluralism Project at Harvard University. Focusing on the intersectionality of young people, technology and faith, Skyler was named a Germanacos Fellow for young innovative interfaith leaders through the Interfaith Youth Core, where he sought to build tools for communities to explore their religious landscape and more easily collaborate across faith lines.

Skyler’s work in interfaith engagement was expanded after he developed his groundbreaking and award-winning video-series Meet the Neighbors which uses a unique mix of interactive social media and community events to foster collaboration and community building.

He was named by Catalyst magazine as one of the 2016 “20 under 40” leaders, is a Leadership Spokane alum (class of 2017), and was the recipient of the inaugural “Emerging Philanthropist of the Year” by the Emerging Leaders Society. He holds leadership posts in Rotary Club 21, and serves as an ambassador and a Next Generation Leader to the Parliament of World’s Religions.

Currently, he is a Voices of Renewal Fellow for the State of Formation, a Leadership Development Program for Emerging Religious & Ethical Leaders sponsored by Hebrew College and Boston University’s School of Theology.
