ISLA Leadership Retreats

Where Professional Development meets Self Development

ISLA Leadership Retreats provide a space and opportunity for educators to come together to gain both professional and spiritual development. The setting is purposefully chosen to be away from the hustle and bustle of city life, nestled in a natural environment. Each year, the Retreat rotates locations to try to increase accessibility for Islamic school educators across the nation. Still, educators fly in from all parts of the country to come together, network, learn, reflect and grow as individuals and professionals.

I am going back with a lot of motivation and ideas for my school. I was too caught up in day to day admin work and was losing the spiritual aspect. The program was vey well balanced. Not only did we find out what others were doing, but we also identified what we are doing right and celebrated this.

I love that the retreat was not only lectures. The interactive activities are a great way to help us retain what we are learning, insha’allah.

I very much enjoy the intimate structure of the program, the opportunity to network, get ideas from people who do the same work, and share what we do in our schools. It gives an opportunity to make us, as principals, feel that we are not alone, providing us with resources and people to go to when needed.

The professional attitude by ISLA has been outstanding. The colleagues who joined me in different workshops are dedicated, talented and motivated to make a difference within their schools. May Allah bring ajr to their industrious output for our community. JazakAllah for an outstanding retreat.
