Hasib Muhammad - A Teen With A Very Impressive Profile
Hasib Muhammad is a teenager with very little time on his hands. He is leading on so many different agendas in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, all of which individually would be incredible, but together they make awesome reading. Hasib takes us through his very impressive professional profile:
Vice-President of Engagement
November 2013 – Present (Greater Atlanta Area)
Greening Forward serves more than 2,000 young people directly by providing them the tools and resources they need to take their environmental campaigns to the next level. With the support of over $50,000 in mini-grants from Greening Forward, our +110 curriculum resources, our Young Environmentalists Youth Summit, and mentorship, our youth have led projects that have impacted 10,000 other community members, planted 500 plants and 300 trees, recycled 120 tons of waste, monitored 11 streams, installed over 200 rain barrels, built over 80 compost bins, and saved over 300,000 gallons of water here in Atlanta and across the nation.
Youth Advisory Board MemberState President
The National Beta Club
March 2014 – Present (Georgia)
I lead the largest Beta Club state in the United States. The National Beta Club (in celebratory mood in the picture) has become the nation's largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. We are committed to recognizing and promoting high academic achievement, rewarding and nurturing worthy character, fostering leadership skills and encouraging service to others.
January 2014 – Present
The State Farm® Youth Advisory Board (YAB), made up of 30 amazing 17-20-year-old students from across the United States and Canada, is passionate about changing the world of education and impacting student achievement. State Farm pledges $5 million per year to this signature philanthropic initiative to address issues important to State Farm and communities across the United States and Canada. The Board is made up of an amazing, diverse group of students selected from applicants across the United States and Canada. They are full-time students at high schools and universities from Alabama to Ontario. Each member commits about 15 hours a month to the Board and participates in three face-to-face meetings per calendar year.
August 2014 – Present (Greater Atlanta Area)
I grade assignments and tutor students in all levels of mathematics and reading.
Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council Member
The Jane Goodall Institute
December 2012 – Present
During their one year term on the Council (renewable up to 12th grade), Youth Leaders participate in conference calls and webinars twice per month with Roots & Shoots staff and field experts. Meetings consist of project planning sessions and unique professional development and skill building seminars designed to connect Youth Leaders with community leaders and influential change-makers working in relevant fields. I also blog for Roots & Shoots. The picture below shows Hasib in discussion with a delegate after one of his presentations.
National Youth Advisory Council Member
Keep America Beautiful
July 2013 – August 2014
Chosen as one of ten young Americans to serve on the Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The YAC creates a framework for youth engagement with Keep America Beautiful (KAB), infusing the youth voice into KAB's programs and building on the model of youth leadership seen in KAB's local and state affiliates. Through the generous support of the Wrigley Company Foundation, YAC members will be able to partner with like-minded youth with unique perspectives from across the country and learn about approaches for engaging youth in community service.
April 2012 – November 2013 (Greater Atlanta Area)
As Program Director, I work to provide oversight to the program management and development for Greening Forward. I work to develop interactive and engaging curriculum that fosters a desire for environmental engagement. I am also in charge of Greening Forward's Instagram presence.
Summer Communications Intern
June 2013 – August 2013
I work with youth, college students and VolunTEEN Nation Board Members to generate ideas to promote the site. I communicate with diverse non-profit organizations nationally and collaborate with the VolunTEEN Nation team to achieve national expansion goals. I build effective relationships with school districts and leaders in communities throughout the United States, and I frequently write blogs about service ventures for the site.
Teen Advisory Board Member
Gwinnett County Children's Shelter
May 2012 – April 2013 (Greater Atlanta Area)
The Shelter’s Teen Advisory Board consists of high school youth that provide our agency with feedback and direction, giving our agency a strong youth voice about the services we provide. They also provide our residents with positive, fun interaction with other teens, as well as carrying out service projects throughout the community together. Our Teen Board works hard to promote all the positive things that youth are doing in our community and are big part of the hope we give to our residents. This Board is completely youth led. They interview and select their own candidates, lead and carry out their own service projects and decide how the group operates on a day-to-day basis.
Environment and Land-Use Committee Chair
Model Atlanta Regional Commission
October 2012 – February 2013 (Greater Atlanta Area)
MARC participants learn about past, present and future regional issues from both community leaders and ARC experts. The students learn about the challenges of transportation, air quality, human services, land use, water supply and quality. Using that knowledge, students explore regional issues in committees and develop possible solutions to challenges. At their final meeting, patterned after an ARC Board meeting, they present and vote on the resolutions they have drafted to create a stronger, healthier Atlanta region. The students then present their resolutions to the ARC Board for consideration.
