Since 2003, Amachi Pittsburgh's mission has been to empower young minds to overcome the challenges of parental incarceration. More than 17 years later, the urgency of our mission has never been more dire. During a time in which uncertainty is the only thing that is certain, we believe that supporting Amachi youth—our future—is a moral imperative for our city. Amidst a pandemic and widespread social unrest, we’re inviting you to join us (virtually) in celebrating the boundless potential of the young people who give us the opportunity to GLOW in the dark everyday.
Ready. Set. GLOW!

Event Entertainment will include special guest Emcees; the K Theater Dance Complex; glowing presentations; and three exhilarating DJs for an at-home Silent Disco experience!
Two generous donors have challenged us with an opportunity to match funds this fall. Donations up to $50,000 received by October 8th will be matched dollar for dollar! The potential to raise $100,000 this year to help our youth GLOW is real and achievable!
