The mission of the Kwame Foundation is to provide young people an opportunity to learn, grow, and become professionals in their chosen careers. To accomplish our mission the Kwame Foundation provides financial assistance, educational mentorships, internship opportunities, and training in careers consistent with those needed to compete in a changing environment. Although we serve students of all races, our target is minority students pursuing post-secondary and graduate degrees who are bright, talented, high-achieving individuals that would not otherwise have an opportunity for higher education.
Our mission: To help provide young people an opportunity to learn, grow, and become professionals in their chosen careers.
One of the principles upon which Kwame Building Group was founded was to provide opportunities for growth, development and leadership to young professionals. As an extension of that principle - and in alignment with our holistic approach to sustainability - KWAME supports various education and mentorship focused organizations.
In addition, through the Kwame Foundation, we endow scholarships at various institutions of higher learning across the country in order to assist in removing the financial barrier that exists for many minority and first generation college students.
