Mr. Fuad M. Sahouri
The success of the internship program in Palestine motivated Fuad Sahouri to replicate a similar program in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. Fuad's commitment to develop the professional skills and talent of young Arab Americans and to increase their representation across diverse sectors, led to Fuad's establishment of the ABPA Institute. The ABPA Institute is a conduit that partners with numerous employers across diverse sectors, including federal agencies, nonprofits and think tanks to provide meaningful internship opportunities to Arab Americans and underserved minorities, allowing them to transform their academic knowledge into practical job skills, build connections and networks in their respective fields, and help launch their career paths.
Fuad Sahouri is survived by his wife, Mary Zayed, their five children, and 15 grandchildren.
