Vision and Mission:
At Stones to Bridges, Our Vision is to support youth address the struggles they face.
Our Mission at Stones to Bridges is to address the pressures and support the needs of, but not limited, Muslim youth in North America, as a means to promote their emotional, social, and mental well being. We intend to address these needs through a variety of avenues, by developing a platform where youth can freely and comfortably express and address their struggles and concerns.
Further, we aim to develop programs for Parent /Community Awareness and Outreach to ultimately empower the youth by creating an environment in homes and the community that promotes the emotional, social and mental well being of, but not limited to, the Muslim youth in North America.
The Stones to Bridges initiative began in 2010 by a few individuals who had worked with youth in various capacities over the years. Through each of their personal experiences with the youth, they constantly saw the struggles and issues youth were facing in all parts of the country, with no place to openly and comfortably express or address their issues. They were individually disheartened by the lack of support that existed to help youth rise up against issues such as lack of self-worth, peer-pressure, heart break, self-harm, abuse, family and cultural struggles, etc. Though these individuals were from various parts of the country and didn’t know one another (but came together as part of a Higher plan), they knew something had to be done!!

We could not have established or continue to sustain Stones to Bridges without the dedication, commitment and unconditional support from Our Counselors, Executive Board of Directors and Founders, Volunteers, Advisors and Donors.
Many are referenced here and others are anonymous; in either case, every single individual has been a blessing in forming a bridge that is improving the lives of our youth by supporting them in the struggles they face and empowering them to turn their Stones to Bridges. May Allah bless and reward all of you for your efforts. Check out the hardworking team behind the organization here!
