How does the Olive Tree Initiative address religion?

A:

The Olive Tree Initiative is not a religious organization.  The membership demographic of the group, however, is filled with students from all different religious backgrounds. The Olive Tree Initiative respects all religious practices, holidays, and customs of its participants and the countries to which we travel. All participants have the opportunity to observe their specific religious practices. The Olive Tree Initiative embraces the religious diversity of its participants and sees the learning about it as part of the cultural and educational experience OTI seeks to provide.
