Home ASW Foundation

While working on the ASW Foundation at 14 years old Aaliyah started the movement #IAMTHEM which means I AM MY YOUTH.

I AM THEM
The Movement

Aaliyah is dedicated to letting the youth know that NO Matter what you may go through in life, or where you may come from, you have POTENTIAL.
#IAMTHEM is dedicated to encouraging youth to love who they are and to accept the leadership skills that were given to them. Locally, nationally and internationally, ASW Foundation INC, is standing up, taking back our communities and giving the youth equal opportunities. Aaliyah gives her time, talent and treasure to build a better community and to make the world a better place. She hosts seminars, vision board parties, scholarship fundraisers and charitable fashion shows.

When Aaliyah established the ASW foundation she began by awarding scholarships to two seniors, Brianna Smith and Christian Espino. Both students had to meet the requirements which included writing an essay stating how they would stop the violence in their community. ASW Foundation 2015-2016 Scholarship recipients were Drelen Williams and Andrea Fernadez.

Aaliyah utilizes the ASW Foundation to give community service hours for community service work. April 21st, 2017 Aaliyah was chosen to be the President of the Intergenerational program at SouthShore Nursing Home. As a result, she used her voice to host community service days. She leads youth from her community to visit the elders in the local nursing home and provide services to help make life easier for them. She believes this is another opportunity to encourage youth to love who they are and accept the leadership skills that were given to them. Aaliyah hosts talent shows, 4th of July celebrations and birthday events for residents at the nursing home.
