What is an Interactive Learning Partner?

Interactive Learning, along with Service Learning and Synod Day, is one of the three program days within the 2022 ELCA Youth Gathering. Interactive Learning is a holy space where the Gathering's theme is realized within the context of our incredible partners. Interactive Learning invites all Gathering participants to engage with partner organizations to encounter God through a variety of learning styles and sensory experiences. Partnerships and faithful witness empower all participants to experience the wonderful and unmeasurable love of Christ within their own lives. 

Interactive Learning partners are exhibitors of sorts who invite Gathering participants into an engaging learning opportunity that supports the mission of the Gathering, as well as our theme, and lifts up the work of the partner organization or group itself. The Interactive Learning space values: 

  • Inclusivity and diversity.
  • Missional alignment with the ELCA.
  • Ethical and sustainable business practices. 
  • Partnership.
  • Engagement in the overall theme and daily themes.
