ILM Foundation’s mission is to teach life skills to economically underprivileged youth and adults so that social ills are replaced with opportunities for intellectual and economic empowerment.
We accomplish this by working with key partners, and by designing programs that engage participants and use interactive education approaches to provide them with civic engagement and life-long learning opportunities.
Our vision is to create an active network of multifaceted and talented caregivers that utilize their skills and resources to shelter those who don’t have it, develop career or entrepreneurial goals, give care for those who require it, and provide additional educational (emotional intelligence) opportunities for those who want them.
Intellect, Love, and Mercy (ILM) are founding principles that produce a sense of strong leadership. Applying these values are a System for Human Empowerment, and this has built and maintained an incredible experience. Our cultural intellect is an open source philosophy for sharing with communities, leadership, and most of all the youth. ILM’s core values are intrinsic commodities of the American Muslim identity.
