Purpose

The purpose of this initiative is to introduce Muslim youth in the DC metropolitan area to career-oriented and successful adults who can serve as role models and mentors.

Goals

The goals of this event are:

  • To provide networking opportunities between Muslim youth as well as to Muslim professionals
  • Introduce goal-oriented youth to successful Muslim adults
  • To create opportunities for Muslim youth to meet professional Muslim mentors
  • To motivate Muslim youth to enter careers in policy and government
