“And let there arise from among you a group of people inviting to all that is good and forbidding all that is evil. It is they who will attain true success.” (Qur’an 3:104)
MAS Youth aims to inspire the Youth to understand, apply, and advocate divinely ordained values, principles, and solutions in the service of the common good. MAS Youth focuses on a critical segment of our community, young people ages 14-30, and engages them in educational, spiritual, recreational, and social programs. Youth programs are designed and run by the youth, with the guidance of mentors who share their experiences and provide valuable feedback. This creates a great environment for innovation and creativity that is embodied in a range of activities from community service projects to sports tournaments to inspirational lecture series.

MY Sports promotes healthy bodies, strong character, and sound minds. Sports are a very important part of the lives of many youth growing up in America. It not only helps build confidence, teamwork, and companionship, but it is also a great way to relate to youth of other faiths in a positive way.
MY Discover seeks to provide quality lectures, seminars, and workshops to promote intellectual thought and education growth for the youth.
MY Revive consists of spiritual programs and events that provide youth an opportunity to strengthen our relationship with Allah through prayers, inspirational lectures, and bonding activities. Many who attend such events describe it as a life altering experience where they emerge from it feeling much closer to their Creator and feeling the need to be mindful and thoughtful of others.
MY Retreat is a great way to provide tarbiya to our youth in a fun and exciting environment. The change in the environment allows for a level of dedication and seriousness, and if the program is done right, it can build character and tarbiya unlike any other MY project.
