Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Muslim youth, in general, are under pressure from within our community and from the general community. This results in them having a hard time fitting in. Furthermore, there is a huge push against them being recognized as Americans by the general community. Our program aims to connect our youth with the community by taking them out to the community, increasing their involvement in the community, strengthen their faith, and develop healthy individuals.
