Youth Work

Youth at Alfurqan Islamic Centre
Alfurqan Islamic Centre organises different activities for the youth of the community. Youth work helps young people learn about themselves, others and society through activities that combine enjoyment, challenge, learning and achievement. It is a developmental process that starts in places and at times when young people themselves are ready to engage, learn, and make use of it. The relationship between our youth workers and young people is central to these processes.
