About AAMO

Conferences and Seminars

In the last 14 years, AAMO has successfully organized dozens of conferences and educational seminars in both southern and northern California in a very professional way by writing a comprehensive master management plan for each event to empower our youth to lead and organize the program with confidence and due diligence. These practical experiences provided an opportunity for them to learn firsthand the skills needed to become an effective leader, great communicator, and good managers. Alhamdullilah, AAMO takes pride in many of today’s young and energetic leaders who are serving selflessly in the leadership of various Masajid and many Islamic organizations. AAMO's advisers are some of the most influential Afghan Muslim scholars and leaders of our community.
