Welcome to the Muslim Educational Trust - MET

The Muslim Educational Trust was founded in 1993 in response to the community's needs in the Portland area. These needs for education about Islam were generated by the Muslim community as well as the Non-Muslim community.

Muslim Educational Trust is dedicated to the betterment of our society, and strives to achieve its purpose through education, cooperation, networking, and programs which benefit Muslims and non-Muslims in the greater Portland, Oregon.

Urban Forestry Job Training

MET Community Center 2nd Floor Al-Andalusia Hall
10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard, OR 97223
Starting Tuesday, October 4th, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Tualatin Riverkeepers, Centro Cultural, Muslim Educational Trust, and Oregon Community Trees would like to announce an exciting new jobs training opportunity for our community. In Fall of 2016 we will launch an introductory training for jobs in environmental careers, specifically for Urban Forestry. Urban Forestry is the study of designing, installing, and managing trees in an urban and semi-urbanized landscape.

Urban Foresters are jobs that are in demand because small and large businesses as well as cities and public agencies employ urban foresters to design and install trees on their properties. This includes restaurants, corporate industrial facilities, malls and city parks to name a few.

Job Trainings: trainings will be structured around a group of 10 students competitively chosen from community consultations facilitated by Centro Cultural and Muslim Educational Trust (MET). 5 students will be trained at Centro Cultural in October/November and 5 students will be trained at MET simultaneously. Trainings will give students knowledge of diverse job skills needed in Urban Forestry while also giving them exposure to experts in urban forestry who will present lectures and offer good networking connections for students.

Courses will be taught from 6-8 pm weekly during October and November 2016 and students will be reimbursed $10/hour for attendance at these trainings. This will be followed-up by 100 hours paid on the job training intended to apply skills learned with employers Fall 2016/Winter 2017. Transport stipends for buses to training will also be considered.

Our Youth, Our Future

Alhamduillah, we raised $340,000 during our Annual Fundraising Dinner and Ramadhan Campaign. We are still short $270,000 (for outreach, operation/maintenance, and education).
It takes generous individuals from our beloved community at large to bridge that annual deficit and to help keep the Muslim Educational Trust engaged. There is nothing better than you, MET believers, helping the American Muslim community positively integrate.
