mission statement

MiYF was founded by Miss Mandana Sharifi thru 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  or 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.
