Founded by the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh, the AAAT is committed to making a difference in education outcomes of African American youth in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The Trust is a team of more than one hundred African American leaders from every sector who volunteer to communicate with and serve students. The AAAT Collective Focus, a work project of the Trust, began at the University Preparatory School in the Hill District and Westinghouse School in Homewood to:

  1. Improve the academic achievement of 6th grade students through mentoring;
  2. Improve the graduation rate of 12th grade students with Graduation Coaches;
  3. Support the emotional needs of 6th grade and 12th grade students with mentors;
  4. Collaborate with established partnerships in the Hill District and Homewood;
  5. Increase the numbers of students at both schools who are Promise Ready; and
  6. Increase the percentage of students who apply to and enroll in post-secondary education.
