M2M is an inspiring 8 week workshop series for Muslim girls and young women, ages 13-20, living in the New York City area.

It’s on 8 Saturdays from February to April 2020. Participants who have great attendance will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the series. We ask for a $20 deposit which is returned in the form of a $25 Gift Card upon successful completion. We also provide refreshments and metrocards as needed!

Seating is limited and on a first come first served basis. Please complete the application online by January 15, 2020! The application is available: https://forms.gle/bM6wpUXPEzXjaJTS9

This is a great opportunity to meet and network with incredible leaders in various fields. The facilitators can act as mentors and several participants from past years have found internships through M2M! Facilitators include Rowaida Abdelaziz, Shahana Hanif, Kujegi Camara and more!

Please share this opportunity with other Muslim girls and young women.
