SYU Education Outreach
Somali Youth United is rooted in the campaign of education for a better tomorrow. SYU seeks to imprint in the young minds of the community that education is a beautiful thing, that when nourished and replenished daily through studies will blossom into infinite possibilities.
SYU recognizes that somali children are a people of discipline, that are desperate for the opportunities to prove to their parents and relatives that their scarifies made to bring them to the United States was worth it. Somali Youth United aims to provide guidance to the youth community to challenge themselves to excel in their academics. SYU is in development stage in working with college and high school students in mentoring the youth to join forces and form a network amongst each other to achieve higher education.
Cultural Education is also another important goal of Somali Youth United. SYU feels culture invaluable commodity. Children, and teens are losing touch with this roots, their sense of identity. Many Somali have forgotten where they came from, that their homeland Somali is currently in a state of war. That they are the children of the future, the only hope for Somalia. Somali Youth United believes through heritage and cultural education our children shall be our savior and redemption for peace. This is why Somali Youth United is proud to host the Annual Youth Scholarship essay seminar, and the Annual Youth Cultural Night Seminar, in which participants compete for scholarship money, Gift cards, Ipod players and movie tickets, as they are tested or express themselves.
