Current Priority:
Faith in the Vaccine Ambassador

Phase 2: January - August 2022

$1 million grant from The Duke Endowment.

19 higher education campus teams.

100+ collegiate student ambassadors.

Dozens of community partners.

Thousands of Carolinians reached.


Trained with peers across the country on COVID-19 vaccines, community organizing, and storytelling, student ambassadors and community partners are working together to address gaps in vaccine information and access.


Through a generous $1 million grant from The Duke Endowment, Bridge Builders Carolinas (BBC) and its host organization, Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), seek to foster ties between 18 higher education campuses and trusted community partners to address gaps in COVID-19 vaccination education and access for historically marginalized populations.


This second wave of a national "Faith in the Vaccine Ambassadors" (FIVA) program seeks to reach Carolinians by working alongside trusted community partners and religious organizations.
