ARKanum is an inclusive community of Muslim-American youth that strive to perfect their faith and establish lifelong friendship.
Beyond theory, we introduce two significant projects each semester, rooted in our core values. This hands-on approach ensures mentees apply their knowledge, emphasizing community care, kindness, and love—values championed by Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
Arkanum's Mentorship Philosophy:
At Arkanum, we believe in transformative mentorship that goes beyond traditional schooling. Our program infuses God-consciousness in our youth, aiming for a profound shift in character from the moment they join us.
Our sessions adopt an interconnected approach. Initially, we impart foundational Islamic knowledge, guiding our mentees on where and how to begin their spiritual journey. Every session is meticulously crafted, merging religious teachings, engaging activities, and character enhancement. These are grounded in our curriculum's triad: duty to God, duty to others, and duty to self.
Our mentors are more than just teachers; they're role models. Their devout lifestyle, punctuality in prayers, and adherence to Islamic principles become a living lesson for our youth. Through their actions, they inspire a generation to walk on the path of righteousness, just as observing others during Ramadan motivates collective spirituality.
ARK Teens was the first or ARKanum’s
endeavors, serving teens between the age of 12 and 16. The ARK Teens
program is designed to nuture spirituality, confidence, and sense of
belonging to the community. Sports, travel and community events
expand the curriculum, and our dedicated staff is always involved to
help the students thrive.
Components of Teens Program
Team Building & Fun
The people in arkanum are like my second family. The people are very nice and the games we play are really fun. I would rate it 5 stars!
The ARK Juniors program is for kids between the ages of 7 and 11. The Juniors find an extended family waiting for them, and can rely on the Teens for mentoring, advice, and guidance. As Juniors, the students will take part in a fun but comprehensive curriculum that preserves the Muslim identity while building roots in the community.
We hope all our ARK Juniors will move up
to join ARK Teens and ARK Advanced when the time comes.

Arkanum mentors and mentees go on a retreat to a nearby state. Our
retreats allow mentees to bond with their mentors through our
nightly prayers (qiyam), quranic recitations and engaging
activities. All of which create unforgettable memories that nuture
the hearts of the youth and bring them closer to Allah (SWT).
