Teenagers and young people from the Active Life Club were the subject of a study into the aspirations and experiences of Muslim boys in Govanhill.
The study was commissioned by the Coalition For Racial Equality And Rights after the 2011 London riots.
Executive director Jatin Haria said: "After the riots we wanted to find out why the same thing had not happened in Glasgow.
"The study gave young people the chance to recruit and interview their peers, learning research techniques.
"Some of the findings are very interesting, particularly that young Muslim men do not see what happens to them as racism but just accept what happens.
"It paints a bleak picture about employability and apprenticeship opportunities and that is something we are going to look into further."
A total of 40 young males took part to find out what the perceptions are of youngsters aged 12-25 in Govanhill and Pollokshields.
They found most young people had plans to go on to university or college. And while almost all young men were proud to be Scottish, they did not want to be associated with Glasgow due to perceptions of crime and violence.
The group willl present its findings at an event in the City Chambers when Govanhill-based actor Omar Raza will be performing his one-man play An Evening at 7-8-6 The Coconut Curry.
Active Life Club members hope their findings will prompt the council to set up a BME Youth Employability forum to help tackle unemployment among Muslim young men.
Raza Sadiq, chairman of Active Life, said: "We want young people to play an active role in society and learn all the skills required to achieve their potential.
"We had been the subject of a research project in 2011 so this time when we were approached our young people wanted to learn how to do the research themselves and make it a peer to peer activity."
The group, an Evening Times Community Champions winner, aims to promote the social, physical and mental wellbeing of disadvantaged and excluded young people.
