This program will primarily focus on the ways citizens participate in the life of a community in order to improve conditions for others and to help shape the community's future. Skills to help the youth participate in their community in positive ways will be explored such as: volunteering & service, social connection, social/racial justice, public speaking and media training. These skills will be integrated and directed with Islamic principles including fun hands on projects, guest speakers, and a mock student council.
