Who We Are

Equity Ambassadors Foundation provides assistance to ensure that economically disadvantaged young people in the state of Virginia, as well as in other southern and eastern states, not only survive but thrive. To do this, we design and provide programming aimed at empowering and/or enhancing the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of young people throughout the year.

Community Adoption

We've adopted the St. Luke’s Housing Community which is the largest subsidized housing community in Henrico County, VA serving over 1000 Henrico County Public School students.

Foster Care

We provide valuable support, resources, and opportunities to enhance their well-being, education, and future prospects, empowering them to thrive despite the challenges they may face.


We strive to enable young people to become critical readers, informed learners, and active participants in recognizing and valuing African American contributions to society.

Empowerment Programming

Structured after-school educational program designed to foster personal empowerment, resilience, and well-being among participants.

How We Help

Our foundation develops outside-of-school curricula that foster student agency, and our charitable endeavors are directed towards addressing social inequities by specifically serving marginalized groups that are not widely acknowledged to include adolescents in foster care, young parents residing in subsidized housing, and communities with historically low literacy rates. We work to ensure they have the capacity to thrive, not only survive.
