Often coming from unstable home and family environments, newcomer youth will see young Muslim students and professionals as role models and will benefit from having a community mentor from whom they can ask advice, who can empower them, and who is committed to providing them some support. We also want to encourage Muslim students and young professionals to engage with and give back to their local communities.
Young newcomers will be empowered and encouraged to pursue post-secondary education and work opportunities. They will have increased awareness of and access to resources that may enable them to pursue these opportunities. This program will expand the network of MSS support in the community as well.
