Winter Park Achievement Foundation Overview
The Winter Park Achievement Foundation was established in 1992 as a non-profit organization that invests in the unlimited potential of our youth, providing them with the necessary tools to become the next generation of community and business leaders.
The Foundation works with and invests in community partners that support local families, schools and students to increase educational and economic opportunities for youth and disadvantaged families in Volusia, Brevard, Orange, Osceola and Seminole county. In addition to Guide Right, Diamonds in the Rough and other mentoring and educational programs, the Foundation opened the Diamond Experience Computer Learning Center in 2017 in partnership with the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation. The center currently provides computer literacy, experiential learning, college preparation and other programs to the community.
Since its founding in 1992, the Winter Park Achievement Foundation has assisted deserving youth in obtaining over $100K in scholarships to attend institutions of higher learning.
The Winter Park Achievement Foundation is built upon the fundamental premise that a world which celebrates individual achievement and strong communities of color can only be realized when humankind makes an unwavering commitment to the promotion of equality and ending poverty for all.
The mission of the Winter Park Achievement Foundation is to identify and invest in opportunities that engage today’s generation of young people in leading the social, economic and educational transformation of underserved and underrepresented communities throughout Central Florida, the nation and the global community.
