The Muslim American Society is a great platform to activate young Muslim youth. This year, one of their signature projects, Friday Night Live, planned an event to tackle social justice. Attendees were able to leave with action items in their hands for issues they showed passion in. Another example of youth empowerment and activism through the Muslim American Society is the Sunday youth group, MY Life, where girls had monthly field trips/ social projects. One of which was visiting a nursing home, providing mutual benefit to the girls and the elderly. The girls were able to understand the weight of public service & giving back and the elderly were able to enjoy their time with the girls.

This organization is very keen on serving the community. It always wants to keep the brothers and sisters involved through adult usras, fajr programs and volunteering. But more importantly, they want to focus on their youth. Young teens and children have the opportunity to have fun while learning. There are youth usras and also sports programs.

MAS has provided my family a safe and welcoming place to build a strong community. It has helped us serve our neighbors Muslims and Non Muslims alike. The best part is that there is something to do for all ages, senior club, youth programs, learning circles for adults and youth, Sunday school or just a social gathering.
It is a diverse group of welcoming people who care about each other and working together to create a better America.

I am a part of this society in Blaine.And that fact that they really get all parents, children and youth get involved in all the different programmes they offer.And am volunteering in weekend schools,there. The food shelf for all pple from all over mn,with the help of all volunteers is a great project
The fact that they not only focused in their community they try to reach out,for eg,into other communities like churches for pple in need of help,and the annual community gathering co-ordinated with these council churches for the taking heart event,is also one .The co-existence of all ethnicity is very important aspect of every society.

What I love about MAS of Minnesota the fact that they are welcoming. All their masajed, I notice, is full of diverse crowd from all ethnicities, color, and race.
MAS is a pioneer in opening their door to talented young people. In addition, MAS has a big role in growing and educating these talented skilful young men and women and putting them on the right path.
Thank you so much for what you've done and still doing to our Community all over MN

MAS MN is an extremely active and vibrant community. It caters to all: youth, adults, and elders alike. They are especially involved with the youth, and with programs such as summer camps and weekly youth gatherings, they provide a place for the youth to go and be a part of their community.

Great programs for children and teens which have my kids involved in learning and helping the community. The food-shelve that they offer to the community is an example. When my kids take part in the food-shelve, it makes them feel good to help others.

I love Blaine Masjid because of the tight knit community that I have seen grow over the years. I love being apart of the numerous programs that it establishes both for the family, kids and the youth.

It is one of the best Masajid and Islamic centre in Blaine,MN. They have community programs all year around and some where they invite local police and elected officials from the Blaine city and MN state. I Recently attended the taking heart program. For me it was an amazing experience.
