Founded in 1994, the Josh Gibson foundation provides possibilities for today’s youth by providing academic and athletic programs that cultivate leadership and scholarship. Through exposure to life skills coaching, educational support and other opportunities, this foundation has become an instrument for positive change in the Pittsburgh community.

Through partnerships with the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Josh Gibson Foundations started a baseball league to help develop independence, leadership skills, confidence, positive self-image, team-work and responsibility in young kids through extra curricular participation. These activities require students to maintain a 2.5 GPA, proving that education takes priority in these young kids lives.

The foundation also provides several education programs including afterschool programs and mentoring programs.
