Al-Noor in Arabic translates to "The light". As educators and learners, we cherish the light in every girl, for each other's benefit and for humankind. We offer a unique learning space for girls ages 10-14. We pay special attention to ideas of self-identity, community and knowledge. Are you an ANAAS girl?

Filmed over a two week ANAAS film production class in 2012, this awesome group of young experts answers the question, "What does it mean to be a Muslim girl in America today?" Enjoy and let us know what you think.
