What is A Youth Ministry?

Why is it Needed?

Young American Muslims are one of the fastest growing demographics in the U.S. 37% of American Muslims are under the age of 30.

  • Only 10% of youth said they felt comfortable in the Masjid
  • Only 7% of female Muslim youth feel comfortable reaching out to their Imam
  • Only 21% of male Muslim youth feel comfortable reaching out to their Imam
