Welcome to the INGYouth Program

Welcome to the INGYouth Program
Training and Tools for Young American Muslims

ING’s mission is to counter prejudice and discrimination against American Muslims by teaching about their traditions and contributions in the context of America’s history and cultural diversity, while building relations between American Muslims and other groups. 

Our INGYouth Speakers Program empowers young Muslims to counter Islamophobia through formal presentations and informal conversations. Learn about INGYouth certification and check out our upcoming trainings and workshops throughout the country. You can also read about what young Muslims have said about our workshops and see a list of past events with photos and articles.

Check out our INGYouth resources to increase awareness about Muslims!

We’ve created a new set of presentations focusing on various aspects of Muslim life and history. Topics include: Getting to Know American Muslims, A History of Muslims in America, Muslim Contributions to Civilization, and Muslim Women Beyond the Stereotypes.

We’ve also organized a set of 53 Frequently Asked Questions about Islam and Muslims meant specifically for young Muslims as well as a Series of Videos featuring INGYouth Speakers answering some questions.

You will also find tips about how to share and present your experiences as a Muslim with your friends and classmates in a respectful and educational manner.

In our Anti-Bullying section, you can find information on how to tackle the difficult issue of bullying.

Feel free to download our Bullying Prevention Guide for educators, parents and mosques.

You can also learn more about Student & Parent rights in schools.

Print out some handouts (student) and (parent) on identifying and dealing with teasing, harassment and bullying.

Watch webinars for parents on issues and remedies relating to Muslim youth.

We can also refer you to other Support and Resources if you are in a situation where you need help.*
