CAIR-Chicago yesterday hosted a Muslim Youth Leadership Symposium (MYLS) to cultivate a positive and refreshing outlook on what it means to be an American Muslim. The symposium encouraged youth to explore how Muslims, true to their own values, can become model citizens that help make America a better place.

The core mission of the Muslim Youth Leadership Symposium is three-fold: to provide American Muslim youth with a proactive agenda for positive activism, to empower them to guide their communities from the margin to the mainstream; and to foster a healthy American Muslim identity that fits comfortably within a pluralistic society.
