Muslim Youth Outreach (MYO+) works to promote a positive representation of Islamic values and build strong and productive relationships within and outside the community. Kaukab Husain is founder and director of the group. MYO+ teens have tutored refugee students in Dayton and for the past year have been providing virtual tutoring to displaced Syrians within Syria, near Turkey's border. Their Humanity Under Oppression project includes the teens' artwork and reflections on genocide, ethnic cleansing, and mass atrocities. The United Nations has declared December 9th World Genocide Commemoration Day. (officially the International Day of Commemoration and Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide and of the Prevention of this Crime.)
