Teacher’s Assistant- General Information & Application

Introduction of Events for Teacher’s Assistants

The Islamic Summer Camp is held every year under the supervision of Japan Islamic Trust (JIT), more commanly known as Tarbiyah Camp.

IISO is collaborating with JIT in order to provide more productive Summer Camp Activities for children of all ages. The experience would enrich the children’s faith and confidence as they gather and interact with fellow Muslim children of their age in cultural and outdoor activities.
