heinz-endowment

The African American Men and Boys Initiative was created in 2007 to identify and increase educational, economic, social and leadership opportunities for African American men and boys in the Pittsburgh region. This mission uses an asset-based approach in working with the African American community to create improved life outcomes for this population.

Based on community conversations and advisory board input, the current priority areas that guide grant making are: access to economic opportunity; educational opportunity; identity, gender and character development; communications; and evaluation.
