What is NextGen Development Program?
The goal of the NextGen Development Program is to empower young Muslims with leadership, communication, and advocacy skills, grounded in Islamic tradition and best practices, to become better Muslims, better neighbors, and better citizens.
The time to develop our next generation of Muslim activists is now! This training retreat caters to young Muslims (HS Seniors 18+, college students, and recent grads) who are passionate about a domestic or international human rights cause.
NextGen program plans to train and mentor 50 young Muslim activists and leaders over a period of one year (2022-2023).
