Engaging The Youth – For an improved Participation in Mosques
18th March 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We all recall the importance of the youth in our Society. It is very natural that we allocate them special time and space as part of their development in our mosques.
However working with the youth can sometimes be tricky when one isn’t prepared.
MINAB has organised this workshop to provide you:
A) The keys points, based on surveys and research, to understand
- The internal Challenges
- The external Challenges
B) Practical tools to find out
- How to tackle these challenges.
- What will increase more participation of young Muslims in our Mosques?
Open to people involved in Mosques: Trustees, Managers, Volunteers, Islamic teachers.
