Afi Al Hasan PhD: FBICCAAA Chairman Of Community Out Reach

FBI Chicago Citizens Academy

Favorite hobby is truly outreach at a global level. Establishing avenues to provide various needs to the underprivileged including medical equipment, training toward employment building bridges between communities

I’m also truly blessed to have family, friends, and in-laws who are very supportive of my community outreach.

I am involved in the FBI Chicago Citizens Academy as chairman of the community outreach program.

The FBI Chicago Citizens Academy was established in the Chicago Division in 2003 as part of the Community Outreach Program. The purpose of the Academy is to establish and foster relationships and understanding between FBI representatives and the Chicago community. The success and local impact of this Academy have been tremendous. The Citizens Academy has given the community, civic, religious and business leaders, as well as media executives, the opportunity to find out how the FBI “does business.” Graduates have the opportunity to join the Alumni FBICCAAA upon graduation.

Through their coordinated community outreach efforts, the FBICCAAA emphasizes the mission, resources, and priorities of the FBI. Working with key FBI staff, volunteer leaders of the FBICCAAA, and its primary constituency, the FBICCAAA’s goals include:

Providing FBICCAAA’s alumni with opportunities to keep in touch with one another-and the FBI after they graduate;
Providing FBICCAAA’s development efforts with resources, training information and technical assistance supporting the use of best practices;
Promoting the importance of FBI Citizens Academies and FBI Citizens Academy Alumni organizations as community ambassadors educating local communities about federal law enforcement issues and challenges;
Provide the Chicago FBI Field Offices with volunteer/non-financial support in community outreach programs.

Do you ever think what if #education could be better?

Executive Summary

Our objective in this venture is to utilize innovation in technology and engineering for job creation here and in the region.  Research carried out in the area indicates the presence of a huge base of youth whose presence and energy could lay the foundation for a strong self-sustaining economic activity or become subservient to leadership from abroad. Leveraging this movement will be a challenge but one that is well worth the effort.

Part of the challenge is to discover how to engage young people in the education process. We believe that part of the secret lies in the combination of practical education and entrepreneurship.

In other words, it is crucial that we identify the components of a healthy entrepreneurial landscape and identify which of those we lack here – entrepreneurial culture, revolutionary learning environments that engage, motivate and inspire, leveraging technology, innovating at the home-grown level, world-class infrastructure, equity investors, accessibility to banking resources and loans, access to the global market, affiliation with global organizations and a keen eye on the future.

  1. Change thinking, inform behaviors and evolve the culture. Integrate entrepreneurship into the learning curriculum and celebrate successes and advancements.
  2. Gradually introduce the amalgam of formal education with entrepreneurship and innovation to the classroom. The principle should be that of the cradle-to-grave mentality of entrepreneurship and technological revolution in everything we do. The objective is to create a generation of work-ready scholars who keep learning and innovating through their lives
  3. Create an environment where business thinking and creativity permeates the work landscape.
  4. Create and create a “Silicon Valley” of any unified community where the world will come to innovate, create, think and evolve leveraging and replenishing unique resources. This will be based on welcoming and encouraging fresh ideas and challenging old thoughts.
  5. Build a society that embraces refined and high-minded thinking.
  6. Make learning fun, engaging and creative. There is no reason a learner cannot develop and operate a successful business while studying
