Founded in 2001, MIST is a national organization whose mission is "to bring high school students together to develop leadership, promote communication, and inspire creativity while gaining a deeper understanding of Islam and Muslims." It hosts 15 regional tournaments annually, including one in Boston, where Muslim Rhode Islanders participate through their team "Muslims in Action!" The next tournament will be held in March 2017 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. If you are interested, and between grades 8-12, e-mail Coach Aisha!
