Our leadership development programs -- the Young Leaders Summits in Silicon Valley, Washington, DC, New York City & Los Angeles, our Internship Program, and NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change -- address the critical need for thoughtful, effective leaders who can address local issues, national problems, and public opinion.

The Summit is designed to enhance the civic identity of the participants, and to redefine the image and provide a voice of young Muslim American leaders among the policymaking and opinion-shaping community. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience to enhance leadership skills, share unique perspectives with influential individuals and institutions and build relationships with like-minded young Muslim Americans.

In the words of 2012 Government Summit delegate Dana Jabri:

"I will never forget the uplifting words the President of MPAC gave during an internal session when he said, “Don’t forget every great movement started with a small group, patience and perseverance, don’t worry about what they say keep at it, lift up, and touch people’s lives.” The week long summit truly changed my perspective on the ways that I, as an American Muslim can get involved on a local, national, and global level. The MPAC staff motivated and enlightened me as a delegate of the summit by teaching me how to connect and build relationships with my community and for that matter any community across the board."
