Our Vision

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. greater than 2.5. 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.
