National Muslim Youth Summit

In the fast-paced and complex world, Muslim youth have inherited feelings of inadequacy that have become part and parcel of their experiences. Uncertainty of the individual and the community has made it difficult to feel at ease in any role they play, leaving room for doubt and an inability to address them adequately. The National Muslim Youth Summit will bring together youth from around Australia, providing a safe space to empower Muslim voices and gain inspiration from speakers. The Summit will aim to offer the wider community the opportunity to respond meaningfully and provide youth with the support to feel confident in any of the spaces they choose to occupy. The National Muslim Youth Summit will bring together youth from around Australia, providing a safe and open space to hash out their questions and concerns and gain inspiration from selected speakers. The Summit will aim to offer the wider community the opportunity to respond meaningfully and provide our youth with the support to feel confident in any of the spaces they choose to occupy.
