Tours & Talks
Welcome to the Tours & Talks Outreach Educational Program
The Tours and Talks Program at the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati attracts 4,000- 5,000 visitors to our Center every year. In addition, this program regularly sponsors several off-site workshops and discussions at schools, colleges, professional organizations, corporations, nonprofits, and special events. Open House tours of the Islamic Center are available on the first Saturday of the month. Customized tours are offered on other days by appointment and according to the particular needs of the visiting individuals or groups. We invite schools, religious and civic institutions and people of all faiths and backgrounds to learn the basics of Islam and explore the art and architecture of the Islamic Center.
If you are a school wanting to enhance your curriculum and understanding of Islam and Muslims, here are some special services available from our Tours and Talks program:
- Staff a diversity or in-service program, with a presentation at your location covering the basics of Islam, practices, misconceptions, and demographics of Muslims. We can also offer education guidelines and resources.
- A tour and presentation to fit your curriculum needs in learning units such as diversity, major world religions, or world civilizations. Our tours can accommodate groups of 15 to 200 people.
- We offer a one-day teacher workshop on “Teaching about Islam and the Muslim World.” Contact us for workshop schedule and details at firstname.lastname@example.org
