About The Foundation
The Amadou Diallo Foundation works to promote racial healing and build strong community support in guiding students’ pathways to success as they begin to transition from High School to Postsecondary Education and as they pursue career pathways which prepare them to become productive members of their communities. Amadou Diallo Scholars demonstrate that, despite the country they are from or the color of their skin, they are the future and serve as positive role models for young people in communities all across the country. They are excellent examples to follow in their quest for the betterment of their communities.
In collaboration with community-service organizations and developing the Pathways to College Success Annual Scholarships, the Foundation also engages the Amadou Diallo Scholars in community-service projects aligned with strengthening positive community interactions with law enforcement and policy makers. We value developing leadership skills through participating in Foundation workshops, community panels and educational events.
Young People, their parents, members of the community, policy makers, academia and community-based organizations come together and work toward common goals —- education, social justice and harmony.
