Our organization aims to encourage Muslim American youth to work to bridge the gap between Muslims and Non-Muslims. Sound financial planning is essential to getting the most out of life and we have developed a network of resources for students and young professionals.

With approximately 40% of the American Muslim population between the ages of 18 – 29, Muslim youth have the potential to shape the community in profoundly beneficial ways as they determine and begin to develop their career paths.
