Join the Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation Youth Group
Purpose: To provide an opportunity for our Youth of various ages, depending on the age appropriate supervised activity, to meet other youths from various areas of the DFW Metroplex at the same time providing the opportunities for interaction, service, and entertainment by involving them in not just fun activities, but also meaningful service to the community promoting charity and each person’s responsibility to the community. In addition, we hope to serve as ambassadors of the Muslim community to portray a positive image to the public.
In February 2007, TMWF started activities with the youth from various locations of the Dallas area. With members coming from Plano, Coppell, Flower Mound, Dallas, Frisco among others, we have had an awesome seven years of activity. During the years, we volunteered at places like the Samaritan Inn Homeless shelter as well as at their Thrift Store, the Salvation Army, Christian Community Action Food Pantry, North Dallas Shared Ministries, North Texas Food Bank, Heritage Gardens Senior Home and other places. We also participated in the two Humanitarian Day events in South Dallas and National Day of Service helping to feed the underprivileged of the area. The TMWF Youth average about 700-800 hours of community service each year in the metroplex.
In addition to the charitable volunteering opportunities, we have had fun times with Pizza parties, a picnic, a Mother’s Day Tea party, Grandparents Tea Party, and Dallas Maverick basketball games. Our largest annual endeavor is a Toy Drive to benefit the sick children at Children’s Medical Center, Texas Scottish Rites Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House, My Friends’ House, refugee children, shelter children and others during which we collected and delivered toys and gift cards donated by the Muslim community.
We have done some Interfaith activities to build better understanding and tolerance between the faiths while encouraging our Youth to strive to show what real Islam is like in contrast to what peoples’ perceptions may be of Muslims. God willing, this practice at an early age will continue to grow with them into adulthood. Our youth are ambassadors of the Muslim community serving those of all faiths.
In the past year, we have developed a Youth Council of young college aged or recently graduated individuals who have taken the responsibility to organize, coordinate, attend and report back on our Youth events with guidance from their Board Advisor, Farhana Ali.
