The Youth Track Boys program is a mentorship program that provides Muslim male youths between the ages of 15 to 20 years old with a space where they feel a sense of belonging in a nurturing space with trustworthy mentors under the guidance of a godly teacher where they can be launched into their journey to reclaim their sense of God-given dignity and responsibility as Muslim men.
In the youth track boys program we help offer them the right start they need as young men to grow towards becoming strong, pious, balanced and dependable Muslim men that can adhere to the nine core values of the Kawthar Learning Circle.
Specifically, graduates from the youth track boys must have gained a deep conviction that the most important way to actualize their humanity and their manhood is through the sincere and constant pursuit and practice of godly knowledge under authentic teachers and with truthful friends.
During the KLC YTB program students have the opportunity to:
- Think, express and discuss with reliable mentors and supportive friends any of their burning questions and real-life challenges in their journey of faith
- Have a better mastery over their time, habits and goals
- Have a deeper understanding of themselves, their Creator and their destination
- Do hands-on projects with a team of passionate mentors and supportive friends
The teachings used to shed light and inform the YTB program are based on the works of Sh. Mohammad Ali Shomali including supporting material from the following books:
- Self-Knowledge by Sh. Mohammad Ali Shomali
- Self-Development by Sh. Mohammad Ali Shomali
- Lessons on Islamic Beliefs by Sh. Mohammad Ali Shomali
- Lessons on Islamic Morals by Sh. Mohammad Ali Shomali
- Understanding the Quran by Sh. Mohammad Ali Shomali
- Islamic Belief System by team of scholars under the supervision of Sh. Mohammad Ali Shomali
- Islamic Plan for Life by team of scholars under the supervision of Sh. Mohammad Ali Shomali
- Divine Justice by Sh. Murtada Mutahhari
Students that are younger than 18 years old, are able to continue with the YTB until they reach 18 years of age. Students that are 18 years old or more, can continue with the YTB until they reach 20 years of age if they choose.
The YTB program helps its students develop the realisation that they need to pursue and practise godly knowledge in a systematic and continuous way through their life without cessation. Specifically, the YTB team would consider themselves to have succeeded if they were able to prepare and support their students in engaging in the KLC IF program or any other reliable and structured learning platform including but not limited to full-time seminarial studies.
