About OMY (Oregon's Muslim Youth)
Back in December 2010 and in honor of all mothers, the MET Board of Directors launched Oregon's Muslim Youth (OMY أمي, meaning "my mother" in Arabic). OMY is a youth enrichment, engagement, and mentorship program, aimed to help youth find their passion, serve their community, and pursue their dreams. OMY programs provide a critical platform towards positively integrating youth and their families to be an added value to the communities in which they live while staying true to their identities and positively engaging in the public square. OMY programs serve to empower youth and their families by making important opportunities available to them that will help support their self-growth and develop their compassionate leadership skills in the areas of bridge-building dialogue, faith-based community service, and stewardship of Earth and humanity. Such programs include our Youth Ambassadors Club, "giving you hope wherever you are," special elective classes, including speech, tutoring, sports, and various bowls, bees, and competitions of interest to the youth.

Civil Rights Movement Event Flier Final

The Civil Rights movement that’s long advocated for the rights of all people both in the United States and globally continues today. Healing and unifying disparate communities still hurting from hundreds of years of systemic oppression and discrimination needs a collective effort from individuals, organizations, and government in order to fully address societal inequities and create more just societies. Discussing and reflecting on the connection between our history and our present and our future broadens our perspectives and moves us forward as a society towards becoming more loving, accepting, and inclusive.

Meet Marcelino Alvarez:

Marcelino serves as the Chief Product Officer at Fresh Consulting, where he leads strategic initiatives that sit at the intersection of public policy, corporate innovation, and startup ecosystems. Marcelino joined Fresh via acquisition of Uncorked Studios, a product design firm that he co-founded in 2010 and served as CEO. Uncorked began as a mobile design and development studio and expanded its core offering into emerging tech (IoT, AR, AI) over the years. They worked with innovation teams and product teams across industries and geographies, including Nike, Google, Facebook, and Samsung, as well as a number of nonprofits including the Bezos Family Foundation, the March of Dimes, Magnum Foundation, and Fringe Diplomacy. Prior to Uncorked, he served as Executive Interactive Producer at Wieden + Kennedy. He produced the Nike Chalkbot, a robot that printed messages of hope and inspiration on the Tour de France in 2009 and 2010. He's a co­founder of Safecast, an open data initiative to help residents of Japan report and understand the levels of radiation following the Fukushima earthquake and nuclear disaster, and Incúbate, one of the first design-thinking workshops in Havana, Cuba. He is also a co-founder of PIE Shop, a connected device incubator that is part of the Portland Incubator Experiment and is hosted at Autodesk's Oregon headquarters. He sits on the boards of the Freshwater Trust and PSU's Center for Retail Leadership. Marcelino enjoys chatting about baseball, public policy, urban mobility, and sustainable systems. His dream project that brings all these together involves getting the Marlins to relocate to Portland to reside in an eco-friendly waterfront stadium with a kayak pool in left field. He and his wife Margaret have a son Caleb (3), daughter Lucia (2), a dog named Luke, and a cat named Calvin. Thank you so much for your support, and we look forward to seeing you, in shaa Allah (God willing)!
