About ILIA

The beloved Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said in one hadith “All of you are shepherds, and each of you is responsible of his herd”.

The Islamic Leadership Institute of America is based on this advice of the Prophet. Our youth programs instill leadership skills and traits into the participants. We believe that the youth are not only the leaders of the future, but also of the present. Self-leadership is built at the young age.

Our programs are developed to ensure the youth retain concepts they learn and enjoy the experience. In a mix of mountain hiking, BBQ, swimming, team building, soccer, and reflections from the great stories of the Quran, the creations of Allah and principles of Islam, your child will come to appreciate and recognize the value of pateince and perseverance, inshaa Allah.
