ICN Al-Falah Youth Program
Developed with guidance from Shaykh Rizwan Ali, ICN Religious director

Goal
ICN Al-Falah Academy Youth Program goals are to help our youth stay connected to Islam. The program has been tailored to maintain a balance of education and fun so the students enjoy the experience and gain the most out of it. Being a part of the program, the students will:

  1. Gain Islamic knowledge
  2. Have the opportunity to discuss Islamic topics openly and freely with teachers and peers in a safe environment
  3. Socialize with other Muslim of their age group
  4. Work on projects to grow as leaders in the society

Overview

After completing 7th grade at ICN Al-Falah Academy, students may register with the ICN Al-Falah Academy Youth Program. The Youth Program is intended for students in the age range of Grades 8 through High school. It is a three years program (see outline below). Upon completion of three years in the program and meeting specific 3rd year requirements, a student would graduate from the youth program. The student may then advance other volunteer or learning opportunities of their choice.

Student Expectations
Youth program students must abide by all expectations in the ICN Al-Falah Academy handbook. Students are expected to come with a positive attitude and have the willingness to strive to become better Muslims.

There will be a few in-class assessments which the students must complete. Additionally we will assign a few Advanced Learner Assignments which will be optional and serve as extra credit.

Workshops and School outings
ICN Al-Falah Academy Youth Program administration and staff will arrange a few school outings throughout the school year. Other workshops or talks will be arranged with invited guest speakers or teachers focus on specific topics like Fiqh or address other youth / community challenges and how to address them.
