To invest in children by giving them a chance to succeed no matter what background they come from. The AGH Foundation does this by exposing them to resources and opportunities that they might not otherwise have had access to. We are focused on areas we feel are of tremendous need to the communities in which we work and on the ways in which we can do the most good. From education around historically black colleges and universities, access to the arts and social empowerment through youth entrepreneurship our areas of focus offer the opportunity to dramatically improve the quality of life for many people. We focus on building partnerships that bring together resources, expertise, and vision—working with the best organizations in our communities to effectively engage the youth in these areas we’ve identified.
We want to become the premiere organization for students to achieve their full potential by tapping into their interest and talents that can further their educational and career goals. We are focused on results and the opportunities that can be attained by honing in on the individuals, and the not issues. We are truly inspired by a passion to see young people be successful in a myriad of ways. The methods that drive us are based on a logical way of thinking and enhanced by our tenacity. Our approach is to be innovative which means thinking outside of the box, making our mistakes and adjusting accordingly, and always working to improve the mission we have. Our strategic plan helps us to define what we believe success looks like for the young people we aspire to inspire, but our ability to be effective is truly based on how we work with our partnerships in our respective communities.
Every child is important and deserves a chance to be successful. We wish to showcase that by unlocking the potential inside every child. We see the value in all lives and we are dedicated to improving the quality of life for young people in communities both domestically and internationally. Whether that means exposing the HBCU experience to young adults from Kansas City or giving a child from inner city Chicago an opportunity to experience the arts or providing underprivileged youth in New Orleans with entrepreneurial tools, we are the promise that we wish to see everywhere.
We will achieve our vision by partnering with nonprofits, schools, local businesses, universities and large corporations to help execute programs within communities such as Kansas City also other cities both domestically and globally. We seek to inspire change and growth on an international scale. Our focus on social empowerment unlocks the potential of the individual personal and the community at large. We want our work in the field of education through historically black colleges and universities, giving access to the arts, and helping families and communities thrive, to be a changing force, both today and tomorrow. Our efforts on youth entrepreneurship will help ensure that young people have the tools they need to achieve the promise in their own lives.
