Who We Are

A Distinct Identity

The American Leadership Development Council is a new group with a simple purpose. We will identify the most talented, accomplished young adults from the American Muslim community through a competititve application process in order to further develop their leadership skills, expand their professional networks, and pair them with mentors from fields of their choosing.

Leadership development and mentorship early in a young person's career can help her accomplish her goals and make a bigger difference. It's our goal to accelerate that process.

Why is it Needed?

Mentorship Matters

American Muslims may face unique opportunities and challenges in the professional world. The American Leadership development Alliance matches young people with successful leaders in specific disciplines so they may receive relevant career and personal guidance. Peer support and leadership development can help maximize the potential of talented young men and women.
