Advice to some sunni masājid in the UK: Elders should always be involved, however do take on board good and actionable ideas/suggestions from the public and the youth. Bring in dynamic speakers on Fridays or for talks. If your masjid has a madrasah then for God's sake: Recruit qualified teachers! This is primordial. Don't just bring anyone in. Devise a proper syllabus with timetables and exams. Be transparent. Liaise with parents. Some parents don't even know what their kids are doing for 2 hours everyday in the madrasah, except for "we read Quran" or "the teacher had something to do, so we talked amongst ourselves for one hour". Please. It is not hard to do better than mediocre.
