The 2016-2017 MAJIC season culminated in the Y4Y Fair, or Youth for Youth, an event focused on educating the community about youth homeless and doing direct service to help homeless youth. The MAJICians wanted to show that two communities, Muslim and Jewish, could come together to make a positive change in the world.

This is America – a place where young people come together across cultural and religious difference to create change and strengthen our civic fabric.NewGround's High School Leadership Council – MAJIC (Muslims and Jews Inspiring Change) invited the community to a day of learning, service and advocacy around the issues of Youth Homelessness for Global Youth Service Day. Together with Muslims, Jews and others from across Los Angeles, the youth learned from government organizations, non-profit organizations and student leaders about the issues facing homeless youth in our city, and actions we can take to support our young people. MAJIC students prepared and distributed over 300 hygiene packs and 50 $25 gift cards to homeless youth in Los Angeles! #IGotURBack #4thofJuly #Y4YFair #GYSD
