Strong Muslim Youth Building a Stronger America

Get Involved Now

There is a lot going on at MY Project USA. If you are a Muslim American highschooler, there is a great chance for you to find a project or initiative that could use your help in making our community and this country better than ever before. If you can't find anything, you can come up with a new idea and present it to MY Project USA's board for approval. After initial planning and training, you might be able to start your own little project under MY Project USA. Welcome aboard MY Leader!

MY Family Pantry

MY Family Pantry serves fresh produce and other goods to families of low socioeconomic income in the Hilltop area on a weekly basis. Our volunteers unload the goods on Thursday afternoons and distribute the food to the families on Saturday mornings from 9am to 2pm. We have served up to 150 families in one day. Every helping hand is needed!

MY Soup Kitchen

In Ramadan 2015, we launched our very first soup kitchen called "MY Iftaar Kitchen" in greater Columbus area. By the grace of God, it was a big success. The entire community came together to help us distribute food boxes every day since we launched. This is now an ongoing project that we do every Ramadan. 17 days into Ramadan 2017, we had distributed 2,031 meals. If you are interested in leading or helping with this kitchen.

MY Food Basket Drive

MENTOR: ZERQA ABID 

 

By the grace of God, our first drive in Ramadan was a great success. We delivered almost 1200 uncooked meals in 35 baskets containing non-perishable food items.  This is now a monthly event. We are currently serving about 100 families on West of Columbus.

MY Toys Drive

MENTOR: SADAF SHAHOOD

Help us bring a smile on children’s faces by donating or volunteering for our annual MY Eid Toys Drive. Our first year, we fundraised, purchased, wrapped, and delivered 1500 Eid toys and gifts, alhamdulillah. Our goal this year is to distribute 2500 toys and 750 goody bags, God willing. Please sign up now and share this event with others to help us continue to make this a successful event. Please make sure to individually wrap or bag the gifts and also put labels on them.

Earth Action Days

MENTOR: NEEDED TO REPLACE ZERQA ABID 

Earth Action Days are meant to address the environmental issues in our neighborhood. We organized two action days earlier this year and they were huge success. We have now adopted Sullivant Ave. on the west side of Columbus to keep it clean throughout the year. We are also adopting a land to grow a community garden. We are looking for more youth leaders to lead future events and take lead in growing our community garden. If you are interested.

MY Tutoring Center

MY Tutoring Center is a youth-run initiative to help children of refugees and other underprivileged communities on the west-side of Columbus. We currently hold a reading program in Wedgewood every Tuesday from 4-6pm. Contact Samira Mohamud for more information or if you would like to volunteer.

MY Girls Club

MENTOR: Amne Shalash, Fauzia Chaudhry

 

MY Girls Club is meant to create a safe space to learn and have fun for little girls in the underprivileged communities. We will be organizing activities on weekly basis on the west side of Columbus, OH. If you are interested to help with this club.
