Boys Mentoring

Youth Auxiliary Is Proud To Present a Right of Passage for Muslim Boys.

 We invest heavily in supporting the development of integrated solutions for Muslim Boys and we are focused on delivering reliable tools to them when they need them most. Through a unique and inspirational process we equip boys with needed tools and provide opportunities to prepare them to become great men. It is a balanced program that covers the educational, physical, spiritual and social needs of the participants. The main focus of the program is to develop positive and healthy male-to-male relationships with the most important goal to support their progression toward manhood. Through adult and peer relationships, field trips, learning exercises and activities in the group-mentoring setting, these young males will learn what it takes to move from being a boy to becoming a man! We have developed a safe and effective program, we are accepting  boys ages 10-17  from a wide range of backgrounds. Discover more about our Right of Passage for Muslim Boys innovative  below.

Education & Outreach

Making a Difference

We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our Muslim Boys are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our these young men and delivers the support they need, when they need it. You are an integral part of our program; what we teach during our program works that much better when it is reinforced by the adults our participants interact with on a daily basis.  Please take the time to learn more about our program and contact us with any questions or concerns so that, together, we can make a difference in the life of these young men.

Community Development

Doing What’s Needed

Through our Community Development, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Islamic Social Services of South Jersey, and a source of much success for our Muslim Organization. A major problem in our communities is that the men who are absent. The question is really one of commitment and caring enough about the well-being of our communities to step up and mentor  boys so they can become capable, compassionate men of character. This can’t be done in a weekend or a day, mentoring is a process that takes time. Commitment from the mentor should be long-term. Men MUST step into the leadership and stop waiting for someone else to address this issue. Get a committed positive male mentor in your son’s life.  It will make a huge difference for him and for you. Get in touch with us today and see how you can lend a helping hand with this program.

Support Services

Tackling the Issue

Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. Islamic social Service of South Jersey, is dedicated to helping the positive growth and development of youth who, even at this early stage in their lives, have experienced more than their share of disappointments. These young men will reap great benefits from the connections they make through trusting relationships, from the lessons learned during group mentoring, and from the fun learning they have as they engage in field trips.  As a result, these boys will move into the world as more stable and balanced young men.  These simple but strong relationships will support the boys as they move on to healthy, happy, and productive lives.
