Our Vision

The Prophet (SAW) said, "Whoever follows a path to seek knowledge, Allah (SWT) will make the path to Jannah easy for him" (Muslim). The Carolina Muslim Youth Conference (CMYC) strives to build confidence in Muslim youth to hold onto their faith by leading them to the path of knowledge and teaching them how to face today's issues with an Islam first approach. We hope to help the youth to become agents of change through seeking authentic knowledge, fellowship and engagement with the Muslim community at-large. With the help of Allah (SWT), the CMYC will energize and motivate the youth to engage with each other in a productive manner and encourage young Muslims to seek knowledge and implement it in a way that is pleasing to Allah (SWT).
