We understand that nothing is more important than your child and you want to spend as much time with them as possible. We also know the value of holidays, when you can travel with them spend quality time together. If you want to have them with you for every vacation, the sacrifice may be too great and the MISK Fellowship may not be right for your child and family.
However, if you and your child are excited about the opportunity, you will need to encourage them to attend the scheduled training. This includes:
- Summer school in the US and other international locations
- Training for much of the summer: taking prep classes for college entrance exams and completing their college application
We understand the importance of young people’s cultural and religious and responsibilities. Therefore we guarantee that no MISK training events will be scheduled during Ramadan and the Eid vacation.
