Mentor-Mentee Program


Mentor-Mentee Program

Rihla is happy to provide a year round mentor-mentee program for San Diego Muslim youth. We believe that it takes a community to raise successful god conscious individuals, and we are committed to providing high school and college students with mentors who can help them achieve their academic and career goals. We want to ensure that no one ever feels like they don't have someone they can go to seek advice.

By setting up the ground rules for the relationship, and ensuring that both mentors and mentees are equally committed, we hope that this program will offer sustainable contributions to our community.

College Readiness

There are three questions most high school students have regarding college:


1) How do I apply to college?

2) Which college should I apply to?

3) What should I major in?


Rihla hopes to host a series of workshops, once in the Spring and once in the Summer to properly prepare students to succeed in their endeavours.
