The Muslim Awards for Excellence (MAX) Youth Fellowship is a targeted mentorship program for a diverse group of youth experiencing any challenge(s) that impedes their progress towards their goals. We aim to catalyze excellence amongst young Canadian Muslims through an innovative mentorship program that is two-fold.
- One-one-one Mentorship: A near or early career professional is matched with a young person currently enrolled in high school to mentor and improve career and life prospects for that young person.
- Focused Skill Development Workshops: Youth attend interactive workshops designed to improve their career prospects and help them network with industry insiders.
MAX Youth Fellowship utilizes a strength-based mentorship approach. This focuses on the positive aspects of young people’s lives and asks mentors to nurture youths’ inner strengths and gifts. The objective is to focus on effective mentorship and embracing the goals and ambitions of the youth involved. Strength-based approaches promote healthy child and youth development by building relationships with caring adults within supportive community environments. Strength-based approaches sharpen the mentee’s strengths, interests, abilities and capabilities. The mentor will provide support and consistency for mentees to learn, grow and change through their strengths and capacities.
