MAS-SSF has partnered with MHSOAC (Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission) with support from CAYEN (California Youth Empowerment Network) to create a Muslim TAY Advocacy Program. TAY refers to transitional aged youth ages 15-25. This partnership is part of a statewide program partnered with 15 non-profits.
This program recruited 11 youth from the Muslim community who have been trained to speak to decision-makers regarding our youth’s needs. Our youth have identified the need for a wellness center to be available on campus within the San Juan School District.
These youth developed a town hall highlighting why this wellness center is needed and what resources should be available.
Watch our youth’s town hall for more detailed information on:
