Specifically, the Olam Institute aims to make the following contributions:
Creation of online educational content. Currently the primary production of the Olam Institute is a Sunday School podcast that approaches scripture from a faithful and academic perspective. We have other content planned including a Humanism podcast, websites, and online courses.
Cooperation with universities to improve religious education offerings. We hope to help fund and increase Religious Studies course offerings at the university level, as well as making videos of courses available online.
Organizing of community lectures and events. The Olam Institute envisions a broad spectrum of projects to improve religion and religious education at the community level. Our goals range from sponsoring lectures and organizing conferences to the ultimate objective of establishing Religious Humanist denominations.
We are currently in the process of acquiring 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
