in Houston, Texas
MAS Youth (MY) is the Muslim American Society (MAS) department dedicated to serving young people in Houston and throughout the United States.
We firmly believe in the potential of young Americans to bring about positive change in their communities when equipped with the right tools, skills, and knowledge.
As a movement of youth and young adults, we are inspired by the call of our Creator as expressed in the Divine Scriptures:
“And let there arise from among you a group of people inviting to all that is good and forbidding all that is evil. It is they who will attain true success.” (Qur’an 3:104)
Our aim is to empower young individuals to comprehend, apply, and advocate divinely ordained values for the betterment of society. The core of our values is service, equality, and justice. Through a range of educational, spiritual, recreational, and social activities, our programs engage youth aged 15 to 30.
These initiatives are designed and led by the youth, with the guidance of mentors who share their experiences and provide valuable feedback.
Among our signature projects, MY Campus Services recognizes the transformative potential of the college experience and emphasizes the importance of activism both on and off campus.
MY Retreat offers a dynamic environment for youth to receive Tarbiya (nurturing) in a fun and exciting setting, fostering character development unlike any other MY project.
MY Discover aims to provide youth with high-quality lectures, seminars, and workshops to promote intellectual growth and education.
MY Give demonstrates the interconnectedness of faith and activism, mobilizing young people and instilling the Islamic spirit of social responsibility.
MY Revive encompasses spiritual programs and events that allow youth to strengthen their relationship with Allah through prayers, inspirational lectures, and bonding activities. Many participants describe these experiences as life-altering, feeling closer to their Creator and more mindful of others.
MY Mentor plays a vital role in Tarbiya by providing young youth workers with role models from whom they can learn. This project bridges generational gaps, nurturing relationships, patience, understanding, and fostering love and respect between mentors and youth.
Finally, MY Sports promotes healthy bodies, strong characters, and sound minds, recognizing the importance of sports in the lives of many American youth. It builds confidence, teamwork, and companionship.
Together, through these initiatives and more, we strive to empower and uplift the youth of Houston, fostering a generation that will lead by example and contribute positively to society.
