Who Can Attend

The speaker training workshops are open to all Muslims who are interested in learning how to speak in public about Islam from an educational perspective.
You do NOT have to become a speaker for ING to attend this program, although we would love to have you join the Islamic Speaker Bureau. Certified ISB speakers are invited to schools and other public and private institutions, and deliver onsite presentations to students and adults each year.


What You Will Learn

The workshops will benefit you tremendously by increasing your knowledge of Islam and how to speak about Islam to non-Muslim colleagues, friends and general audiences. ING's work and content materials are scholarly based.
The ISB speakers kit you will receive was developed over many years by scholars, including Shaykh Hamza Yusf, Imam Zaid Shakir, Dr. Umar Faruq Abdulla, Dr. Ingrid Mattson and Dr.Sherman Jackson; indigenous scholars who are traditionally educated.

The ISB program has been the core of our outreach efforts to increase religious literacy and promote mutual respect among people of all faiths and none.

The fee to attend is $30.00 per person and includes:

- Leader-led training with interactive activities
- A speakers kit with presentation materials and FAQs developed by scholars
