VISION 

Our dream is to engage Toledo Youth in building a comprehensive Youth Program that inspires them to Live Prophetically. We are confident that together we can design a program that promotes Knowledge, Spirituality, Community, and Service. By cultivating socially conscious art, heightening our spirituality, organizing for social change, and enlightening our minds, we can develop young Women and Men who contribute to the world, are creative, compassionate, and confident in their Islamic Identity and Heritage. We can only rise to this dream collectively. Join us.
