5/10/17 – Save the date for the 2017 Muslim Youth Expo

Muslim Youth Expo 2016

Save the date for CIOGC’s 3rd Annual Muslim Youth Expo which will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at Moraine Valley College and will be co-sponsored by Moraine Valley’s Muslim Student Association. 

At last year’s Youth Expo, CIOGC hosted an art competition in which Muslim youth were able to showcase their talents. The Fresh Palettes competition allowed Muslim youth to showcase their original works in poetry and spoken word, sketches, paintings, and sculptures. The Expo also included a lecture by Ustadh Ubaydullah Evans to remind the youth that they are responsible for upholding, maintaining, and passing on Islamic values to the generations coming after them. 

The Fresh Palettes competition will take place again this year, and we aim for it to be even bigger and better with more diverse pieces of work on display. For more information, to sponsor, volunteer, or register for this event, please contact CIOGC Youth Coordinator Jameel Karim at jameel@ciogc.org.
