Proudly participating in its first Fasting 5K, the team in Columbus, Ohio has selected The Family & Youth Institute as their local charity. The FYI is a research and education non-profit focused on the mental health needs of Muslim families and youth. The FYI conducts original research on factors that promote or prevent the healthy development of families (the present) and young people (the future). The research is then used to develop psycho-educational programs that can be implemented in the community to empower young people and their families.
Donations will be used to support educational efforts that will help youth mentors, school teachers and community leaders better understand and serve youth. Specifically, they will learn about Muslim youth development, specific challenges faced by youth, risk and protective factors, as well as implications for masjid/school/organizational programming.
