What  is  DEFINE?     DEFINE  is  an  afterschool  &  weekend  program  offering  innovative  curriculum  and   engaging  instruction  in  character  and  leadership  development  for  American  Muslim   children  K-­‐8th  grade.       What  is  DEFINE’s  vision?     “Bridging  the  gap  between  faith  and  character.”       Why  does  my  child  need  DEFINE?     Most  full-­‐time  schools  lack  the  time,  resources,  and  innovation  to  offer  enriching   curriculum  for  the  meaningful  and  intentional  teaching  of  emotional  intelligence.  Yet   Harvard  Business  Review  reported  that  research  by  Daniel  Goldman  indicates   emotional  intelligence  is  twice  as  important  in  career  performance  than  technical  skills   or  IQ.  At  senior  levels  of  leadership,  emotional  intelligence  accounts  for  up  to  90%  of   the  difference  between  low  and  high  performers.       DEFINE  offers  a  unique  program  that  allows  parents  to  reinforce  critical   skills  their  children  need  to  succeed  in  school,  career,  and  life.   Participants  of  our  program  can:     ü Navigate  through  the  tumultuous  middle  and  high  school  years   and  build  internal  motivation   ü Find  purpose  and  understand  how  to  manifest  faith  through   character   ü Set  themselves  apart  from  the  rest  on  their  High  School  and   College  Resumes   ü Cultivate  better  relationships  with  friends,  family,  colleagues,   and  the  community     How  does  DEFINE  work?     DEFINE’s  original  curriculum  is  based  on  a  3-­‐tier  framework  on  social,  emotional,  and   ethical  intelligence.  Our  character  coaches  facilitate  project-­‐based  learning  in  which   students  are  able  to  take  a  deep  dive  into  a  particular  character  trait  project,  such  as   gratitude,  fear,  or  happiness,  to  name  a  few.  Each  project  runs  for  about  3-­‐4  weeks  and   integrates  various  disciplines,  including  arts  and  physical  education.  The  depth  and   research  that  goes  into  each  project  brings  about  better  awareness,  retention,  and  self-­‐   reflection  for  the  children.

How  can  DEFINE  help  me  as  a  parent?     Faith  is  manifested  through  character.  The  home  is  the  first  place  for  building  values   and  learning  good  character.  DEFINE  seeks  to  supplement  and  provide  meaningful   context  to  that  through  our  original  and  engaging  curriculum  and  parent  workshops.    

 

   

                                           

How  will  I  know  my  child  is  making  progress?     Every  project  culminates  with  a  closing  event  that  allows  students  to  present  their   work  to  their  class  and  parents.  Coaches  also  provide  feedback  on  student   achievement  of  goals.     What  is  unique  about  DEFINE?       o Accessibility  to  the  90%  of  Muslim  students  attending  public  school.     o Leadership  Framework  infused  with  Quranic  &  Prophetic  character   o Project-­‐Based  Learning   o Continuous  training  &  development  of  character  coaches   o Multiple  activities  under  one  roof     Who  are  our  coaches?     One  of  DEFINE’s  primary  focuses  is  development  of  our  character  coaches.  We   understand  that  the  quality  of  the  coach  makes  a  huge  impact  on  the  success  and   engagement  of  the  child.  We  are  invested  in  recruiting  coaches  that  are  able  to  make   meaningful  connections  with  their  students  and  act  as  mentors.  DEFINE  supports  its   coaches  through  continuous  high  quality  training  for  professional  and  personal  growth.
