MAS Youth (MY)
MAS Youth (MY) is the department of the Muslim American Society (MAS) which serves young people throughout the United States. We believe that young Americans, with the right tools, skills, and knowledge, have the potential to bring about positive change in their communities. We identify ourselves as a movement of American youth and young adults who aspire to answer the call of our Creator as put forward in the Divine Scriptures:
“And from among you there must be a party who invite people to all that is good and enjoin the doing of all that is right and forbid the doing of all that is wrong. It is they who will attain true success.” (Al-Quran 3:104)
We work with young people to inspire them to understand, apply, and advocate divinely ordained values in the service of the common good. Our core values are service, equality, and justice. Our programs engage young people through educational, spiritual, recreational, and social activities. These programs are designed and run by the youth, with the guidance of mentors who share their experiences and provide valuable feedback.

MAS Youth interfaith friends chose to fast for one day, just as Muslims do during Ramadan, to become educated about how it feels to spend a day in the life of poor people around the world. It was truly a challenge to fast for the first time until sunset, but it gave inspiration to help the needy people who undergo these situations daily.
