Since 2005, Farajii Muhammad has been making his mark in broadcasting by using his weekly show, Listen Up!, as a medium to empower, inform, and uplift the consciousness of the next generation of leaders.
Farajii began working in the youth development field in 1999. As co-founder, president and spokesman for the youth-governed organization New Light Leadership Coalition (now New Learning Leadership Center), he often worked to develop young leaders, connect youth to resources, and bridge the gap between youth and local government. As a social entrepreneur, Farajii has used his passion for young people to stand as a voice for youth, advocate for their concerns, and an example of a leader and community servant.
This work has led him to serve in many avenues, including speaking at community and national events, presenting workshops at conferences across the country, and consulting with community organizers, young leaders, and political figures.
Farajii currently serves as the Youth Empowerment Coordinator for the American Friends Service Committee in Baltimore. There, he is using his experiences, skills, and resources to develop the Young Leaders for Peace (YLP) Coalition, which will serve as a means and platform to encourage the mobilizing and organizing of young leaders to strategically address pressing social justice issues facing themselves, their peers, and their communities.
A son of Baltimore, Farajii received an associate’s degree from Baltimore City Community College and a bachelor's in Mass Communication and Public Relations from Towson University in May 2006.
