Young Men & Women’s African Heritage Association


Young Men and Women's African Heritage Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to engaging the Pittsburgh community through culture, arts and education programs.

YMWAHA believes in the importance of arts education. Our arts-centered programs were developed to empower Pittsburgh’s children with a sense of determination and accomplishment.

It is our hope that our programs will allow for personal growth, creative expression and social change.


YMWAHA’s mission is to provide school-aged children and their families with the cultural, artistic and educational tools necessary to become positive and active members of society.


YMWAHA’s vision is to become Pittsburgh’s leading community-based nonprofit that provides children with the ability to grow through cultural identity.
