Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies Young Muslim Leadership Programme 2018

Application Deadline: Monday 5 March 2018.

In cooperation with the Prince’s Charities, and with the support of the Amanah Foundation and ISESCO, the Centre organises the Young Muslim Leadership Programme to encourage greater participation by Muslims in public life. This nine-day residential summer school is held at Oxford each year and is attended by young British Muslims, men and women between the ages of 21 and 30, who have demonstrated leadership potential in their chosen career-paths. They are drawn from a variety of backgrounds and interests, including national and local government, academia, the legal profession, media, and the voluntary sector.

The course consists of workshops, seminars and institutional visits. Presentations are made by Members of Parliament, senior civil servants and academics, as well as representatives of the media and community organisations. In evaluating their experience, participants have welcomed the opportunities the Programme provides to discuss the challenges facing Muslims in relation to education, employment, housing and foreign policy.

The thirteenth Young Muslim Leadership Programme takes place between Friday 29 June to Sunday 8 July of 2018 at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.

The aims of the Young Muslim Leadership Programme are to:
• Enable participants to become confident in their identity as Muslims living in the United Kingdom, to be aware of their responsibilities to the wider society, and to relate their own personal development more effectively to this context.
• Promote knowledge of the diversity of opportunities within British society and develop leadership skills among the participants.
• Enhance both self-understanding and group understanding through intensive discussion about how young Muslims may best learn from each other, as well as from the wider communities of which they are part.

Application Procedure:

The thirteenth Young Muslim Leadership Programme takes place between Friday 29 June to Sunday 8 July of 2018 at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.
