Programs

ING offers a variety of programs for diverse audiences including schools, colleges, and universities, as well as healthcare, law enforcement, corporations, and community organizations in the greater San Francisco Bay Area and nationwide in areas where we have local affiliates. We also provide a variety of programs and resources for young Muslims through the INGYouth Program and are proud to be the founders of Know Your Neighbor (KYN), a collaborative effort which works to combat bigotry and promote inclusion among diverse communities. See below for more details about each program.

Islamic Speakers Bureau

As the core of ING’s educational services, the Islamic Speakers Bureau (ISB) provides education about Muslims and their faith and related topics to middle and high schools, as well as to colleges and community groups. In middle and high schools and colleges, this program supplements the study of history, world religions and related topics in social science or world history classes, while in community groups it fulfills the need for information about a greatly misunderstood topic.

INGYouth Program

The goal of the INGYouth Program is to counter prejudice and bullying by increasing young American Muslims’ religious literacy, building confidence in their Islamic identities based on a sound understanding of their faith; inspiring bridge-building between American Muslims and people of other faiths, and/or those with no faith; and preventing extremism which is often based on ignorance of authentic religious teachings. The INGYouth Speakers Program empowers young Muslims to formally and informally present on Islam and Muslims.

Know Your Neighbor: Multifaith Encounters

This program was created to promote understanding and mutual respect among Americans of diverse religious and ethical traditions. It has grown into a collaborative effort of nearly a hundred national and regional organizations and groups with diverse missions and objectives who work together on campaigns that push back against bigotry and discrimination while promoting civil dialogue across differences, building relationships and peaceful communities, and advancing human rights and justice.
