ABOUT US

What's this centre all about?

Hume Islamic Youth Centre, is a multi-purpose centre based in the city of Hume - Northern suburbs of Melbourne with a large migrant community. HIYC is managed and run solely by volunteers from the Hume area. Many Imams (religious leaders) are a part of the dedicated volunteer team, continually giving their precious time to the community in various forms. HIYC has established a safe and friendly environment that caters for the youth, with activities and programs, usually free of charge. HIYC encourages the development of a virtuous character by conducting educational workshops promoting a healthy mind, body and spirit based on Islamic principles. With the help of the Muslim community, HIYC has rapidly grown over the last years.

What's our aim?

The city of Hume is renowned for its cultural diversity and boasts the second largest Muslim population in Australia (Source: ABS, 2006 Census of Population and Housing) and is the largest Muslim community in the State of Victoria.

The Hume Islamic Youth Centre (HIYC) aims to provide a safe and friendly environment for the youth of the local community that facilitates and promotes learning, a healthy and active lifestyle, the development of virtuous character and an enlightenment of the spirit based on Islamic principles.

The above aims will be facilitated through educational and recreational workshops, programs and facilities.


HIYC is different

HIYC is different because it is the first of its kind to successfully provide a complete combination of both moral and religious teachings as well as a relaxed and friendly environment for the youth to ‘kick-back’. These include a gym, billiards, table tennis, restaurant, cafe and various class topics on a daily basis all under one roof. This never before seen combination is designed to both entertain and enlighten the youth who will be the future leaders of our community. In addition, our services for women in the community are also unique and accommodating as we provide them with exclusive classes, exclusive gym times and exclusive restaurant booths for women to eat in peace and privacy.

Finances

Financially, it draws on the pockets of ordinary Muslims who donate their hard earned money to help the organisation function. All of its members, including the Sheikhs (religious leaders), work on a voluntary basis. Sponsorship from local businesses also play a part in helping the HIYC providing larger events.
