Cool Islam, founded in 2016, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to educate, empower and establish our youths regardless of race, religion, color and gender.
Cool Islam hosts a wide variety of activities that would be helpful and rewarding for refugee youth and their families.
These are a good example of what they offer:
- Packing 100 lunches--and love--for the women's shelter
- Youth open forum in which parents and youth dialogue (to increase effective communication between generations)
- Family fun afternoon at Barsotti park (soccer, kite flying and more)
Cool Islam has indicated that given notice they will attempt to find someone who speaks the language of any refugee.
Youth can get after school help, career coaching, ESL tutoring or join the Young Writers Club. Cool Islam also seeks to strengthen the families of these youth, offering marriage and family workshops.
