MY Leaders Scholarship Fund Foster Strong Muslim Leaders

Dear Community, 

This Ramadan, you have seen a glimpse of what our youth can do and what MY Project USA can do for them and for you. As we conclude Ramadan, we ask you to show your support and appreciation by donating to our MY Leaders Scholarship Fund. 

Our first summer camp is starting on August 5th, 2015. Several of our youth have applied for scholarship. Your donation will help us accepting as many as possible in this program. The aim of this camp is to train them as stronger Muslims, better community organizers and leaders within their own communities. Br. Riyad Shamma and myself will work with each one of them to make sure that we fulfill their needs and help them through the process. The recipient of this scholarship will be required to complete 30 community service hours and to launch/join a community service initiative. 

InshaAllah, this will not only help the Columbus Muslim community, but it will also help the larger Muslim American community, and America herself by manifolds.

We are open to have several scholarships under different family names. If you are interested to have one under your parents name or family name, we can definitely do so. We will include you in the process of selecting the recipient of your scholarship. Minimum donation amount for such family scholarship would be $500. In general, any amount will help though. 

Please donate generously and make this Eid truly joyous for our wonderful youth. We have updated our donation pages. You can now contribute toward this fund through general donations or zakat. You can opt to pay one-time or through recurring payments.

Youth Development: Summer Camp

Empowering Myself & My Community

Teen Summer Camp with Riyad Shamma l Columbus, OH l Age 13-17  

Less than a month left for this incredible camp. SPACE IS LIMITED. Rush now to save your spot. This is an excellent opportunity for Columbus Muslim Youth to get skilled in the art of community organizing and activism for the sake of Allah. The more youth we train the better we address Islamophobia and many other challenges that Muslims are facing in today's America. Br. Riyad Shamma brings his long-time experience of organizing MYNA and other camps. Sr. Zerqa Abid brings her two-decades of experience as a community activist/organizer, a business professional and a youth mentor. This is going to be ten days of learning, inspiration and actions for youth participants. Make sure to register yours now.

It  is a collaborative project of MY Project USA and the Institute of Youth Development and Excellence. It is specially designed to empower Muslim youth (13 -17) in finding their role and place within their community and society.
