SMYRNA, Ga. - GeorgiaChron -- The ISB Leadership Institute (ISBLI), a partnership of the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta (ISB) and CIFAL Atlanta, announces plans for the third annual institute that will begin in January 2021.  iSBLI trains and cultivates civic leaders who create positive and constructive changes within communities and add value in the public square.  Applications are being accepted now through December 18, 2020 for the 2021 Institute.  More information and the application are available on ISB's website:

ISBLI provides a remarkable group of young leaders with opportunities to engage with established community leaders in Georgia, gain skills and experience in advocacy and service, and build their networks of experts and influencers.  The nine-month institute meets one Saturday each month (virtually, during the COVID-19 pandemic) for sessions that included thought-leader facilitated workshops, panel discussions and interactive learning.  Said one alum, "Unparalleled professional networking, exceptional access to leaders, and unmatched caliber of trainings are the hallmarks of ISBLI.

An opportunity of a lifetime awaits those bold enough to level up their skills alongside driven, supportive colleagues."

A key element of the program for all ISBLI classes is to put their new skills and knowledge into practice by developing and implementing a service project for community-based organizations.  The 2020 ISBLI graduates  helped the Al-Falah Academy by creating a high school mentoring and career advisement program, and supported the work of the Georgia Muslim Voter Project by  developing a voter demographics survey and population location map.   Organizations interested in working with ISBLI should contact ISB executive director, Soumaya Khalifa or visit the website at

ISBLI offers opportunities to improve leadership skills, become more effective community leaders and join a vibrant network of civic and community leaders. For more information, please contact Soumaya Khalifa at 678-523-5080.
