mission statement

 MiYF was founded by Miss Mandana Sharifi, the CEO of PR Firm Mandana International, thru vision of Christ on July 30th 1997. This is her testimony. MIYF received its 501(c)3 charity status in Florida a year later (N98000004117 under Florida Dept of Business & Professional Regulations. We were then awarded charitable status on the Island of Bermuda in Dec 11th 2001 (Reg#610). In addition we are very proud to be awarded UK charity status on 16th Aug 2011. Request MIYF to bring the 'Stop The Violence' Awareness campaign to a city near you. In December 2010 we brought it to Bermuda thru our founder Mandana Sharifi who is also the former City of Bath UK PACT Forum Chair (Oct 2010-Feb 2013 ) with the PACT panel consisting of local Police and Government with the aim of listening and responding to communities' concerns. We aim to have a PACT Forum chapter in every community worldwide  Each Planet MiYF center is dedicated to helping teens fulfill their dreams by teaching them the skills via entrepreneurship workshops, sports & entertainment clinics prepared by our board of Trustees/Directors who are former pro-athletes, corporate executives and legendary entertainers motivating and coaching in the fields of Sports, Music, Film, Fashion, Broadcasting, Corporate and Entrepreneurship.
