The Muslim Youth Center of Philadelphia (MYCP) is working to develop a strong Weekend Learning Program for Muslim students in grades K-8. The program seeks to provide a welcoming environment for students to learn about the Islamic tradition, develop confidence in their faith identity, and connect with other young Muslims. Our holistic program aims to cultivate in students a deep appreciation for the beauty of Islam and the richness of its tradition. Our context-based approach is one that considers and responds to the unique needs and challenges of young American Muslims today.
We are seeking dynamic and creative individuals to teach in this weekly program. The onsite time commitment is ~4 hours each Sunday. Ideal candidates will have a strong foundation in Islamic knowledge and a vibrant teaching style. A teacher training program is included to support teachers in sharpening and diversifying their teaching methods. To apply, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and a brief statement of interest by 9/1/2017. Positions will be filled ASAP.
