Diamond Jubilee Volunteer Registration Continues

The National Council for the United States of America is pleased to announce the launch of Diamond Jubilee Volunteer Registration, offering Ismailis around the nation the opportunity to serve the Imam-e-Zaman and build lasting memories during the Diamond Jubilee.

All Jamati members (including uniform and non-uniform volunteers) over the age of 8 as well as interfaith family members can register to serve in multiple events and on multiple days.

Interested volunteers and Jamati members can register online by creating and managing their Jubilee Event Management System (JEMS) profile. Interested members may also register in person at Jamatkhana, where registration volunteers will be available for assistance.

For more information about volunteer registration, visit the JEMS Help site.

Jubilee Hub and Ismaili Student Colloquium

Jubilee Hub
All young professionals ages 22-35 are invited to attend Jubilee Hub - an initiative designed to help explore the spiritual and religious significance of the upcoming visit of Mawlana Hazar Imam to the USA. Questions regarding the difference between various ceremonies and how one can prepare for the upcoming Mulaqat, will be examined. 

Through participant-driven dialogue and conversation guided by trained facilitators, young professionals will be able to better internalize how the upcoming opportunity to take part in Mehmani and Bait ul-Khayal in the Huzur of Hazar Imam can play a role in their quest to seek balance, contentment and spiritual enlightenment.

The sessions are only open to 22 to 35 year olds and limited to the first 30 registrants.  The sessions details are below. Please e-mail JubileeInfo@usaji.org for more information.

Jubilee Heritage: Our Legacy & Our Future

Taking place from April 13-15th, 2018, the Jubilee Heritage: Our Legacy & Our Future excursion, a Diamond Jubilee Initiative, is a special weekend excursion to Toronto and Ottawa for young adults ages 25 – 40. The excursion is designed to deepen the understanding of our Ismaili identity, Ismaili value systems and the worldview it inspires, while meeting other Jamati members from the United States and Canada. It aspires to provide an opportunity to engage with new friends, and participate in intellectual dialogue and discourse.

The excursion will include tours of heritage sites in Canada to understand the vision and work of Mawlana Hazar Imam. Visits to the Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat (DII) and The Global Centre for Pluralism (GCP) in Ottawa, and The Aga Khan Museum (AKM) as well as the Ismaili Center in Toronto (ICT) will provide opportunities for networking and building life-long friendships.  The program will feature panel workshops facilitated by young accomplished professionals.
