After School Club: YMLC hopes to partner with Islamic Schools and other Muslim institutions to encourage their members to participate in our "Lifelong Leaders Afterschool Club." During Covid, schools are struggling to find high impact extracurricular activities for their students. Activities that teach students unique skills have them engage in competitions and participate in real-world experiences. That is why the YMLI team developed this after school club. The club's activities are divided into four distinct sections. These sections will cover CAIR essential skills. It includes weekly virtual learning sessions and concludes with a competition with cash or other prizes. Examples of real-life activities include both Texas Muslim Capitol Day in Austin and the Washington D.C. Lobby Day in the summer. Five social events will be scheduled throughout the year for participants of different schools to build meaningful relationships.
Costs: $50 per student
- Participants who complete all four sections will be eligible for the CAIR-Texas College Scholarship of $1,000.
- Assistance: We will never let cost stand in the way of students who would like to participate in this program. Any student needing assistance will be either given a reduced price or no cost.
- Ages: High School Students (Exceptions Made for 8th Graders)
How to Signup: Students must register online no later than Sunday, Nov. 8th, 2020.
