Lecture 2b. Coming of Age: Understanding Your Emotions (Younger Youth)

We make many mistakes in our youth and it's up to us to learn from them, but that doesn't mean we have to shoulder all that weight by ourselves. In this session, we will learn to understand and cope with our emotions so that we, and the people around us, can live healthily and happily.

Lecture 3a. Mental Health: Learning to Take Care of Yourself Before Taking Care of Others (Older Youth)

Even as youths, most of us hold a lot of weight, responsibility, and stress; more than what people usually assume and a lot of it due to factors we can't control ourselves. In this session, we will learn how we, as Muslims, can work through issues and learn to properly prioritize ourselves sometimes without feeling selfish.

Chaplain Sondos Kholaki

Lecture 3b. Unity: Lessons From the Quran (Younger Youth)
