What challenges lie before Muslims worldwide? What will it take to sustain our communities in the face of these challenges?
We need youth to be strong, proud, and knowledgeable Agents of Change who can stand up for justice and build healthy, thriving, communities.
WHAT WE OFFER
The Deep Roots Project exists to nurture the leaders of the future through a series of leadership training opportunities.
We cultivate 5 essential “Roots” of leadership in youth participants: Heritage, Sincerity, Service, Self-Respect, & Vision
WHAT SETS US APART
Many leadership programs emphasize outward traits like efficiency and eloquence that aren’t sustainable without first establishing the deep roots needed to achieve impactful leadership.
We nurture the roots that make youth steadfast and enduring.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Youth Attend the Deep Roots Retreat
Youth attend a meticulously organized retreat in Andalusia, Spain that will empower them with Islamic Tarbiya, an inspiriting knowledge of Islamic history, as well as leadership and community development skills. Youth are moved through a process that includes engagement, reflection, education, development and action.
The daily programme includes prayer, educational sessions, activities, visits to historic sites, and social bonding. Leadership and service opportunities are integrated with the programme.
The programme is coordinated by Andalucian Routes and the Deep Roots Team. The team and mentors will lead the youth through the programme.
AFTER THE RETREAT
Participants can engage in the following opportunities to demonstrate active leadership:
1 – Deliver a Deep Roots workshop in their home city
2 – Practice a year of Service in their home city
3 – Participate in a Deep Roots Internship in Spain (Summer, 2019)
4 – Attend the Deep Roots Summit in Spain (August, 2019)
