Courteous, Loyal, Soft-Spoken

"Stumbling is not falling."

- Malcolm X



In addition to his classes and participating in the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (SLI), Yousef is involved in multiple activities such as the Muslim Student Association, where he served as president for one year. 


Outside of school and SLI, Yousef participates heavily in the Boy Scouts of America. Having served in various positions, he's found that each role has afforded him the opportunity to give back to his troup and the community, while learning and growing from new experiences. For example, Yousef served as Patrol Leader, where he lead eight scouts, assisting them in advancement and activities.  He's also worked as Troop Scribe, leading a team responsible for keeping records.


When he isn't participating in Boy Scouts, Yousef refines his kickboxing skills, which he's been practicing since 8th grade. He now teaches kickboxing to youth in his community.


Lastly, after volunteering for six months at the Hidaya Foundation, he now works with the charity part-time, where he collects donations and ships them to refugees across seas in Pakistan.

The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (49ers SLI) provides multi-year, year-round academic support, STEM enrichment, skills training, and leadership opportunities to students in middle and high school. Students, who are with the program for six years from 7th through 12th grade, commit annually to 300+ hours of program learning time in addition to their typical school hours. By cultivating student mastery in STEM subjects and in key skill areas, the program prepares students for college and empowers them to pursue their passions; so that they may become the well-rounded leaders of the future. The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute is made possible by the strong partnership between Silicon Valley Education Foundation, 49ers Foundation, Chevron, and the Santa Clara Unified School District.
