Yaseen Youth is a non-profit organisation that was established in 2016 in the holy city of Madinah.
The organisation was formed by a team of youth workers, students of knowledge and professionals who, after many years of working with the Muslim youth of the UK, saw an ever-pressing need for their development, empowerment and education, with the vision of seeing them shape the future and play a critical role in rectifying the issues facing society.
After forming a small team, and with the help of Talbya Travels in London, we soon founded our first project; Yaseen Youth Tours, launching an annual ‘Youth Umrah’, which takes the youth on a spiritual journey of pilgrimage to Makkah and a visit to Madinah, all the while including a holistic youth development programme (consisting of fun activities, adventure, workshops and retreats). The journey serves as a catalyst to their education and empowerment, as well as forming unity and community spirit, mentor and mentee relationships, and building bonds that will hopefully last for decades to come, insha’Allah!
