The Youth Director's Page
All young people need social activities. Being around others in social environments can help develop them socially, emotionally, and spiritually. We provide healthy environments for young students to nourish their hearts and at the same time, relax and have a good time with their friends, in a good environment.
In our religion, being spiritually active is key. Reflecting, learning, and implementing the values we learn through our weekly Halaqas is a staple of what this youth program brings to high schoolers, college students, and young professionals.
In Islam, our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us that even if we cannot give charity in monetary value, we should work with our hands to give back. This aspect of our program ties in social and enrichment together because it allows us to give back together while having fun, and at the same time, implementing what we learn.
