CIOGC’s Senate Page Program’s application deadline is only two days away! This is your last chance to sign up for a chance to shadow a state senator on Illinois Muslim Action Day (IMAD), which will take place in April 2017! The program gives 15 young Muslims from the Chicagoland area an incredible chance to learn more about the legislative process in Illinois. By participating in the Senate Page Program, Senate Pages have the opportunity to participate in lawmaking and the legislative process first-hand.
Noor Alyousef, a former Senate Page from Islamic Foundation School said, “It was a great opportunity to experience what it is really like to be a State Senator, and understand their duties as they play one of the most important roles in meeting our communities’ needs, especially as Muslims.” If you are interested in becoming a CIOGC Senate Page, please apply by the deadline of Friday, January 27, 2017.
