Jr. Saturday Halaqa started in 2012 as an extension of the established Saturday Halaqa program to cater to the elementary and junior high age groups. The main objectives of the program are to:
1) educate students on essential Islamic topics;
2) assign each student to a counselor to learn from and develop a bond with (1:15 counselor to student ratio).
Currently, we are covering Stories of the Prophets (peace be upon them).
Since the start of 2016, we have seen our student body dramatically increase with well over one hundred boys and girls attending weekly! This increase is due in part to the work the Jr. Saturday Halaqa team puts into creating a space for brotherhood and sisterhood to blossom through compassion and mentorship.
Jr. Saturday Halaqa takes place Saturdays 6-8 pm for boys and girls ages 9-12, and recently added boys 7th-9th grade.
