Why Choose BEAMx?
BEAMx came about from a need in our Muslim community for high quality, trusted youth mentors, that can provide real insight into various career paths, and show how they can connect with our deen. Structured with the same techniques and goals used by top leading youth mentors nationwide, BEAMx has been highly rated by parents, Imams and youth leaders as the perfect avenue for career guidance and Islamic inspiration that our youth desperately need. Too many high school Muslim teens report feeling unprepared for selecting college majors that resonate with their future aspirations, or feel a disconnect between Islam and work life. BEAMx fills in that void that many HS/college guidance counselors cannot provide. With BEAMx, teens engage with professionals in the fields they aspire to be in, getting a real view of what different careers are like, and how those fields can keep us connected to the deen.
BEAMx uses a strategy proven to better prepare youth for selecting college majors and career paths that fall in line with their aspirations and skills, without losing sight of their Islamic obligations.
Did you know that Ivy league and top universities don’t only consider GPA/SAT scores in admissions? It’s well established that their criteria encompasses much more:
*Demonstrated interest - Did candidates actively involve themselves in the selected career field during MS/HS?
*Essays - Are students able to exhibit what sets them apart from other candidates? Do they have a knowledge base and understanding of the field already developed from early exposure and hands-on experience in the field?
*College Recommendation Letters - Do candidates have credible professionals in the field who have observed and can confirm the student’s level of passion and capabilities in their respective area of interest?
*Extracurricular Activities / Internships -
Have students received a realistic, unbiased sense of what the specific field involves? Have they experienced a thorough, well-put-together program exposing them to different aspects of the career, to know whether or not they will truly like it?
BEAMx is designed to:
*Actively involve students in their field of interest with hands-on skills and a sound understanding of what is expected.
*Give students first-hand experience that would only be provided in specific college courses; giving students unique field-specific, solid material for the college admissions essay, and included as valuable extracurricular activities.
*Recommendation letters by course instructors. All BEAMx instructors are professionals in their specific field, and passionate about helping students find their career aspirations.
The empowerment of youth begins with a clear and valuable understanding from career experts who value the deen. Why not give your children a head start in experiencing different professions firsthand with trusted mentors?
