{jcomments on} The Young Muslim Leadership Programme at The Prince’s Charities Wadham College, Oxford from the 18th – 31st August 2013 aims to:

• Enable participants to become confident in their identity as Muslims living in the United Kingdom, to be aware of their responsibilities to the wider society, and to relate their own personal development more effectively to this context.

• Promote knowledge of the diversity of opportunities within British society and develop leadership skills among the participants.

• Enhance both self-understanding and group understanding through intensive discussion about how young Muslims may best learn from each other, as well as from the wider communities of which they are part.

The Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) and The Prince’s Charities will be holding the eighth Young Muslim Leadership Programme (YMLP) at Wadham College, Oxford, between 18 and 31 August 2013.

This intensive residential summer school is open to Muslim men and women between the ages of 20 and 29. Applicants must be British citizens. Programme Participants enjoy full board and lodging in the traditional Oxford setting of Wadham College. “I really valued the course itself, as well as the opportunity to attend the venue at Wadham College at Oxford. I believe it has given me a unique insight into this established institution, as well as providing an introduction to OCIS. I will keep this in mind in my future goals and ambitions. I have taken away a lot from this course, I absolutely loved it! ” YMLP Participant

The focus of the Young Muslim Leadership Programme is on the national role and contribution of Muslim communities in Britain. It consists of workshops, seminars, and visits to prominent national institutions. Guest speakers are drawn from Parliament, academia, non-governmental organizations, the civil service, and the media. There are opportunities for networking and social interaction which facilitate contacts and potentially lifelong friendships among those participating. The Young Muslim Leadership Programme is an invaluable forum for young British Muslims with strong leadership potential to come together and consider key issues affecting British society.
