Volunteer for the Young Muslim Leadership Network
The Young Muslim Leadership Network is a project which seeks to engage young people between the ages of 16 and 21 to discuss topical issues affecting young Muslims and the general Muslim Community, and will address the perceived alienation of the Muslim community.
We are recruiting young Muslims in London and Birmingham specifically between the ages of 16 and 21 to discuss issues that affect the Muslim youth and community and which may contribute to the alienation of these groups in the wider community.
They will tackle topical issues and will be able to question leaders in politics, the law, police and media in order to aid their understanding and tackle these issues. With this knowledge group members will produce resources to be used by peers, as well as teachers in mainstream education, police and youth workers by August 2010.
Citizenship Foundation is working in collaboration with experienced representatives from the Young Muslims Advisory Group, Muslim Youth Helpline, Three Faiths Forum and British Muslims for a Secular Democracy.
The closing date for applications is 31st September 2009 with the induction meeting scheduled for October.
