Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati (ICGC)

Boys/Dad Club

Statistics show that the average time a dad spends with his son is 5 minutes a day. We are in a time when your son’s best pal is his electronic device. Join us to make a difference to close gaps between generations and build balanced young Muslims to be the foundation for building a successful community. Spend some time with your son and get to know other dads and their sons, learn together, play, and serve the community.

Goals:

  • Strengthening the bond between fathers and their sons.
  • Providing the children with a healthy Islamic environment to flourish and grow closer to Allah.
  • Provide the boys with Muslim role models to look up to.
  • Help the boys create strong friendships and brotherly bonds with other boys.
  • Provide the boys with a program that offers mentorship from Muslim fathers in the community.
  • Help the boys preserve their Islamic identity.
  • Help the boys understand Islam, the balance way of living, apply it in their lives, and call others for its teachings.
  • Help the boys learn some needed life skills.
  • Help the boys stay physically healthy and mentally strong and happy.
  • Prepare well balanced individuals to be the future nucleus of our community.
