NEED Foundation Outreach
The NEED Foundation offers a number of resources for students, parents and educators, including a mentoring program with the goal of empowering under resourced youth within the region. NEED’s African American Male Mentoring Initiative (AAMMI) ensures students have the necessary skills and resources to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their personal potential.
Through small, personalized relationships, mentors are able to encourage students to pursue opportunities such as internships, employment, study abroad and post-secondary education.
With 95% of the AAMMI mentees matriculating to post-secondary education in the last three years, the NEED Foundation is proud to have eight different school-based sites within the Pittsburgh Public School District.
