ILIA - Infographic

Support America’s unique leadership institute. ILIA has been a pioneer in developing innovative leadership development frameworks and is the first organization world-wide to offer Islamic values and principled based leadership development training such as its Youth Project Management flagship certification program. ILIA’s EmpowerOne mentoring, coaching and counseling program is another example of an invaluable resource for the Muslim community. EmpowerOne has literally saved lives alhamedellah. A sister transformed her life from taking pills and being suicidal to a top performer at a top state University, a brother transformed his life from partying, drinking, falling into sin, dropping out of school, abandoning his parent and getting in trouble with the law into an ambitious STEM student at a top four year University, and lastly a high performing brother at high school was able to gain a huge leap to further excel and become the top student in his class and secure a full college scholarship, a few examples of inspiration stories of ILIA’s unique coaching and mentoring model.


The total cost of the project is $160,000
