Muslim Youth Identity

The Muslim Youth Identity (MYI) event which took place on December 2nd in Washington, D.C. was a huge success and the AMHP Mental Health Team would like to to maintain the momentum that was garnered from the event by hosting similar events throughout the country. We received several inquiries about coordinating similar Ted-style events modeled after the MYI event in Washington D.C.  We are now seeking individuals from a diverse set of geographical areas who are interested in hosting an MYI in their city.  If you or someone you know is interested in coordinating a #MuslimYouthIdentity event in your area, please send an email to and visit this link to fill out the appropriate form. We’re always on the lookout for smart, savvy young leaders as well who can deliver a valuable lesson or two — and we’d like your help by nominating a speaker of your choice.
