Within its Cultural Centre, the YCA also runs Islam Awareness sessions aimed at primary schools thus offering support to local schools with their RE curriculum.

The sessions aims to raise awareness of Islam, dispel myths, fears and prejudices by creating opportunities for communities to engage with one another.

The sessions are delivered by experienced YCA staff, opening the YCA Cultural Centre for school visits to allow young people to explore prayer areas within the centre and participate in a fun ‘Discover Islam Trail’ where young people find answers to set Islamic questions within the compounds of the YCA Cultural Centre.

This facility can easily be extended to deliver Islam awareness exhibitions and training to statutory bodies and the local community.
