If you’re in middle or high school, chances are at some point you had to break down the meaning of Islam to your friends or explain how Islam is against terrorism to your classmates. With media saturated with negative images of Muslims and Islam, CAIR-Philadelphia designed a program to provide you with the platform to discuss civil rights and community issues that arise in your daily life.

What Is the Muslim Youth Leadership Program (MYLP)?

The MYLP encourages youth (ages 12-16) to be proud of their Muslim identity and it promotes civic engagement and activism.

Workshops and conferences focus on:

  • Building a positive American Muslim Identity
  • Standing up against Bullying and Harassment
  • Learning about Civil Rights
  • Understanding and working with People of Other Faiths
  • Getting involved in the Larger Community

CAIR-Philadelphia also offers an adult version of the workshop, where parents and other guardians learn:

  • What legal rights do children have in schools
  • What to tell children about how to respond to bullying, including cyberbullying
  • What to do when a child tells them about bullying
  • Why to take bullying seriously and reasons to avoid the “kids will be kids” mentality
  • How to encourage children to empower and educate themselves
