Baitul Aman Youth Club (B.A.Y.C.) was formed to satisfy the spiritual, material, and social needs of youth in the city in accordance with the teachings of Islam. B.A.Y.C. is dedicated to helping Edmonton youth to prepare as engaged leaders and citizens through projects and programs that focus on building our communities.
By including fun, energetic and engaging activities, we help motivate youth who are dedicated to making a difference in their community by working with all Edmontonians to make a sustainable and lasting change. Our purpose is to unite the Muslim youth in Edmonton by spreading positivity and generosity, all while appreciating our diversity and our Islamic heritage for the sake of Allah.
We aim to build a connection between the youth and the Masajid. Our primary activities develop qualities, teamwork and well-balanced individuals. To nurture a generation believing in Allah, proud of being a Muslim, confident in himself, helpful human being, self-sufficient, goal driven and capable of carrying the message of Islam.
Baitul Aman arranges various programs throughout the year for youth:
We regularly offer educational events where we strive to achieve new heights by providing tools and an environment for youth to develop their interests, foster skills and increase their knowledge and education.
Sports and Wellness Activity
We aim to tackle different aspects of the athletics and recreation realm in youths’ lives to ensure that they have opportunities and can take part in a variety of activities by joining events for some fitness and fun. Its aim is to increase the physical and mental well-being of youth.
Our ultimate goal is to anchor the youth to the mosque so that they see it as a second home where they can strive to teach Islamic studies, and morals and to build the best of Islamic character.
