Our Services

EDUCATION

Weekend Islamic School (WIS)

One of NIA’s major academic programs is the Weekend Islamic School (WIS). The WIS program provides basic knowledge of Islam to our youth.  The goal is to help students develop their faith and character at an early age. Every Saturday morning, 150 students (ages 5-18), 18 volunteer teachers and 12 teacher’s aides meet for sessions. The school is divided into 10 classes; each carefully selected to meet the students’ academic level and age group. With formal education provided by WIS along with further attention and encouragement from home, students may gain a much greater appreciation of Islam and develop confidence in their identity.

Weekly Classes

Throughout the year, NIA hosts 12 classes that meet on a weekly basis. These classes cater to the needs of all age groups and are offered 6 days of the week. Contact Us to find a class you!

Islamic Training Programs

These carefully planned sessions encompass workshop related activities that ask the youth to critically analyze themselves and their future.
