With our programs for children and youth, we aim to ensure that children have a meaningful spiritual education. Cordoba House has crafted a uniquely inclusive and spiritually nurturing Islamic education program for children that is both authentically Islamic and relevant to modern day American life. We aim is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of Islamic beliefs and practices through cultivating a personal relationship with Islam based on the love of God, His Prophets, His scriptures, and His angels.
Cordoba House has successfully implemented two pilot semesters in Fall 2015, and Spring 2016, and one ongoing afterschool Tajweed class. We provide students with a brand new curriculum accompanied by cutting edge age appropriate activities. These lessons afforded students a strong foundation of Islam that will inspire and inform them for the rest of their lives.
We are also developing a Teenage Halaqa sessions where important issues will be discussed. We are calling on teenagers aged between 14 – 17 to help us with their thoughts and input. We are also looking for educators and curriculum developers who have experience with children and youth programs, please contact Naz Georgas at NG@CordobaHouse.com with subject line “Teenage Halaqa” for more information.
