The Guide Department focuses on educating the public on Islam and Muslims, along with serving as a support system for those who are new to Islam.
Due to many misconceptions about Islam and the rise of Islamophobia, IIOC created and dedicated this department to primarily focus on education and serving as a resource for accurate representation and information.
Guide's services include:
- Guided tours of the mosque for guests of all faiths and backgrounds.
- Providing presentations about Islam at local schools and churches.
- Hosting informational tables at various venues.
- Interfaith participation and event partnerships.
- New Muslim/Revert support system and classes.
- Weekly classes for new Muslims and guests of other faiths.
- One-on-one mentorship program for new Muslims to pair up with a mentor and learn more as they navigate their new journey.
