Muslim Youth Leadership Symposium (MYLS)

The core mission of the Oklahoma Muslim Youth Leadership Symposium is to provide American Muslim youth with a proactive agenda for positive activism; empower them to lead their communities from the margins to the mainstream; and foster a healthy Oklahoma Muslim identity that fits comfortably within a pluralistic American society. We, at CAIR Oklahoma, are dedicated to fulfilling our MYLS mission by organizing a series of workshops, debates, and collaborations with community and interfaith leaders, local and state politicians, educators, and others that cover a wide range of topics affecting the Oklahoma Muslim community.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Ethnic and racial groups

We bring together Muslims from across our state to directly meet with their representatives and discuss the issues affecting Oklahoma’s Muslim Community. At Muslim Day at the Capitol, participants receive training (no special skills or prior experience is necessary!), support, and encouragement throughout a day of civic engagement filled with meetings with elected officials. This event is educational, empowering and vital to the success of our community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In the next five years, CAIR-OK aspires to be

An organization of choice for board members, donors, volunteers, staff and interns to continue the programs that benefit the Muslim community and all of Oklahoma.

An organization focused on justice and equity through a system of principled and trustworthy programs including legislative advocacy, proactive lobbying and education, expert refugee resettlement, and other programs benefiting the Oklahoma Muslim community.

Financially stable to provide current programming and develop a financial model to engage in new programming when the need arises.

Highly recognized through a communication strategy to highlight not only the impact of programs but the wealth of opportunities at CAIR-OK for partnership to improve Oklahoma as a state.

A trusted seat at the table for all types of convenings (not just those involving only Muslims) and an instigating convener for crucial conversations in Oklahoma communities.

An organization that provides valuable services to the Oklahoma Muslim community that they would otherwise not have access (e.g., immigrant rights clinic, demographic surveys, etc.).

An organization that builds a future beyond Islamophobia for Muslims in Oklahoma and one in which future generations can thrive based upon their own merits rather than pre-judgments of society.
