The Young Inspirers is a project of Shura Council of Southern California that provides education, mentorship, and an avenue to give back to their community and make positive contributions to the Muslim community through the Shura network.
Believing in the youth and the young talents, Shura councils launched this amazing program in 2017 as an intensive training to young professionals on the best practices of running a non-profit organization and serving on its board. From non-profit law to governance, to media relationships and other aspects of work needed in the non-profit sector. After nine months of training, participants will receive a certificate showing they could be the best contributors when serving on the board of their organization.

Board Of Imams
Imams are the spiritual leaders of our Masjid, the source of religious information to our community members, and the first consultants our community members go to when guidance is needed. The board of imams will serve to support the imams and empower them to serve the community in the best way. It will also serve to keep the imams and scholars in touch with the rest of the community members to assure good spiritual nourishment that fits the challenges of our times.
