As recent immigrants and first generation Americans, we want to show our support for our community. We appreciate the opportunity to live and work in a friendly, safe, and values-based community. In return, we want to directly participate in the growth of our community.
We established a Scholarship Foundation, Immigrants for Development and Education in Austin Youth Aid Inc. (IDEAYA Inc.) to provide educational opportunities for deserving, low-income, high school graduates with a G.P.A. below 3.0. who:
- Are unlikely to receive the required financial support and guidance to gain viable employable skills beyond high school,
- Have limited employment options, and
- Will be vulnerable to becoming part of the extralegal workforce.
