Muharram Planning

Your time and commitment is needed to organize nightly programs for our children to guide their energy toward something useful. If you have two hours of your time to share for one (or more) nights of Muharram (first 12 nights) at Iman, working with organizers and following their direction to manage children, please let us know!

We are planning to have activities for children while parents participate in the adult Muharram program knowing that our younger ones are also spending their time well with enrichment activities.

We are asking for volunteers 15 years of age and older to engage in activities planned for two age-based groups: 4-7 yrs and +7 yrs.

Volunteers are expected to spend two hours at IMAN each evening with other organizers working with children and keeping them engaged.

Activities may include storytelling, book reading, game-based activities, art and craft, and etc. The activities will mostly be led by organizers and volunteers will assist them in managing the events.

However, if you like to lead an event or have ideas/suggestions, we’ll be more than happy to hear from you!

So, if you think you can share two hours or more of your time with us, please Email with your name, number of hours/nights willing to volunteer and a good contact. Please do so by June 30th.
