Since it began in 1999, African American Leadership Greenville (AALG) has grown from a group of 39 to more than 330 members contributing nearly $425,000 annually to this community. AALG serves to unite African American leaders in Greenville County under a banner of philanthropy, volunteerism and community change.

AALG members participate in a range of service opportunities, from mentoring teens in area schools to participating in United Way Hands On Greenville Day. Year-round networking and social events provide a great opportunity to connect with other community leaders, both personally and professionally.
