Youth are the key to a promising future – both for the Muslim community and for society at large. Our Youth Program is designed to begin instilling a spirit of leadership among Muslim youth, starting as young as age seven. Led by a Council of Youth Leaders with advisors from our board of directors, youth volunteers donate more than 800 hours of community service annually.
Through fun and educational community service, children and teens serve and act as ambassadors to Muslim and mainstream communities. Participating in meaningful and impactful projects such as feeding the homeless, preparing food for school lunches, and Humanitarian Day help pave the way for our youth to grow into upstanding leaders for society.
Currently, our Youth Council is led by five very accomplished young women: Alizay Aseem, Safiyah Jennah, Alaa Kurram, Soha Rizvi and Izah Zaheer. They all began as volunteers and serve today as co-chairs of the Youth Council. They are responsible for organizing youth events, raising funds, identifying resources, recruiting and training volunteers, raising social awareness through radio, theater, and print media and collaborating with local charitable organizations and city government in their endeavors.
Each of these young leaders serve as role models for all TMWF youth teaching others how to eficiently balance adacemics, interests and obligations while still finding time for altruism to help others.
