As a way of engaging young people interested in developing their skills as leaders and activists, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in partnership with Geroge Washington's Muslim Student Assoctaion, is launching a Muslim Youth Leadership Symposium (MYLS). The event is open to participants ages 14-22.
The core mission of the Muslim Youth Leadership Symposium (MYLS) 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 Muslim identity that fits comfortably within a pluralistic American society.
To achieve this, CAIR offers an intensive series of leadership building workshops that will cultivate civic engagement and a deeper understanding of the legislative process, as well as provide hands-on training in the areas of community organizing, media representations, and self-advocacy.
The next generation of Muslims community organizers starts NOW!
