Islamic Leadership Institute of America Launches Greenbelt, Maryland Chapter
Greenbelt marks third local presence for Islamic Leadership Institute of America (ILIA), the chapter aims to provide youth and adult leadership development & training opportunities
The project has been kicked-off by the ILIA Youth Council in July. One of the projects tasked by Youth Council member Abdullah Matar has been to locate a suitable site for the organization in Prince George's County to serve the youth in the area between Largo and Burtonsville. After analyzing several locations Matar presented to the Youth Council possible locations, and the council selected the Greenbelt site, which is near the Greenbelt Metro Station.
The Greenbelt location will offer workshops for adults in the areas of parenting and family leadership, while youth workshops will evolve around character building, college readiness, school empowerment, career development, and leadership training.
ILIA will also extend its EmpowerOne coaching program to teens, young adults, and working professionals, as well as its Mission Excellence tutoring program and Youth Crisis Line (443-429-0095)
