About Us

IDEAYA (IMMIGRANTS for DEVELOPMENT and EDUCATION of AUSTIN YOUTH AID) Inc. a non profitable, tax deductible, 501(c)(3) Scholarship Foundation that was established in November 2010 by a group of like-minded individuals who wanted to make a positive contribution to the community that they call home.  The IDEAYA Inc Scholarship Foundation was developed to help hard-working, at-risk, inner city youth who are unable to overcome socioeconomic barriers to success. These individuals, who are at or below the poverty line with low GPA’s (below 3.0), have little opportunity to gain vocational or technical training.
