Student Support Services


Youth Counseling

EIA strives to provide the best care and support for student’s spiritual, emotional and social and behavioral needs. Counseling takes many forms and may at times be something as simple as a concerned and attentive ear when a student is in need of someone to talk to, or may involve several students and/or family members in a discussion about how best to address an issue that has arisen in the life of the student.


Providing a compassionate counseling service is in keeping with not only the needs of our students, but also in following our prophetic traditions. Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) always listened with mercy to the concerns of those in need and many Hadiths speak of his particular concern for the welfare of youth. Moreover, he (Peace Be Upon Him) advised others to also show compassion to children and youth by saying “He is not one of us who does not show mercy to our young ones” (reported by Al-Tirmidhi and Ahmad).
