Ibrahim Youth Scholars is a Non-Profit organization 501 (c)(3) actively focused on the Awareness of our community.
IYS consists of three main components:
In 2011 the Co-founders of IYS mourned the loss of Khalil Abdul-hadi, grandfather and father, he passed from a silent four-year battle to Cancer. When the family finally gained knowledge of the diagnoses he had been in the hospital for roughly three- five days before his was taken by the disease. This is why we Fight for the cure to Cancer!!!
Khalil was a strong advocate of pursing knowledge and education in communities. He was a retired Architectural Engineer. This is where our S.T.E.M component divers from!!!
In 2003 one of Khalil’s children was diagnosed with Epilepsy, up until the day he left this earth; he, his wife and family struggled with that child and the disease, early this year one of the Co-founder’s son was diagnosed with this very same disease. So we Educated for Epilepsy!!!
Each Component is near and dear to IYS and we intend to create and maintain his legacy and keep our community aware!!!!!
