Jeddah: WAMY

World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) is an international organization whose purpose is to “preserve the identity of Muslim youth and help overcome the problems they face in modern society."

Worldwide they host numerous events, conferences, and camps and boast membership in more than 55 countries.  WAMY is largely funded by Saudi Arabia.  Chapters in the USA were closed due to its close ties with the Bin Laden family.  For all its implied good intentions, the organization begets criticism for allegedly supporting terrorism and sponsoring students to become indoctrinated by radical Muslim clerics in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

Unfortunately, with previous ties to that family, the wariness is natural
