Mission

The mission of the Youth Committee is to provide an open and welcoming environment where the youth of our community develop a strong relationship with their Creator, grow in their faith and achieve their full spiritual, social and leadership potential. Our goal is to offer our youth a platform for discovery and dialogue, promote the Muslim American identity, provide a supportive mentor and peer group and instill a commitment to community service within and outside the MCC community.

The objective of the Youth Committee is to encourage youth to participate and engage in the masjid, to grow love of and connection with the masjid in the hearts of the youth, and to provide the youth a means and a space to help them maintain and grow in their faith.

Young Muslims

Who We Are: Young Muslims (YM) is a non-profit youth organization that has been around since the early 90’s. Over the years, we have established a well-organized network of local youth groups that we call NeighborNets across the United States and Canada. Each NeighborNet is a dynamic youth group which attempts to build a solid understanding of the principles of Islam amongst its members by helping them put these principles into practice. We stress the importance of knowing, understanding, and fulfilling our individual and collective obligations as Muslims to our families and our communities. The YM chapter for high school and college young men was established at MEC in 2007. It began with a group of five friends who met in the mosque to give themselves weekly reminders. Over a decade later, the NeighborNet at MEC involves over fifty youth, alhamdulillah. These brothers come together to meet one another, play sports, eat, discuss relevant Islamic topics along with practical means through which they can be implemented, and much more. YM aims to attract Muslim youth from every walk of life by creating a comfortable environment where all are welcome. The environment is what attracts the brothers; the idea of learning about our religion and having a good time is what YM promotes.

When Do We Meet: Every Saturday after Asr to Midnight

Blessed Bonds

Who We Are: Blessed Bonds is a registered 501(c)3 organization operating under the name “Luminous Branch.” Blessed Bonds is a God-centered, youth organization that aims to positively transform young Muslims; spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. The Blessed Bonds experience is a metamorphosis of sorts. By nurturing a strong and resilient bond with Allah (swt), we hope to guide each precious soul through chrysalis, to emerge as a butterfly. Blessed Bonds Butterflies are unique, colorful, graceful, perservent, and inspire faith wherever they spread their wings. Establishing this bond is facilitated by a qualified mentor. Blessed Bond mentors are sincere in their intention, have an established worship routine, are connected to a teacher of their own, and are continually learning, growing and developing their skills. They are able to connect with youth and set a positive example for those they are leading. Blessed Bonds consists of a series of weekly sessions that include beneficial lessons, uplifting worship and engaging activities. 

When Do We Meet: We meet every Friday evening from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the MEC youth room.
