African American Leadership (AAL)

Since its inception in 1999, African American Leadership (AAL) has united African American leaders in Greenville County under a banner of philanthropy, volunteerism and community impact.

AAL members participate in a range of service opportunities, from mentoring students in Greenville County schools to participating in community-wide volunteer events. Year-round networking and social events provide a great opportunity to connect with other community leaders, both personally and professionally.


AAL’s focus has always been high school graduation. We are pleased to now be able to further our work and assist students with the next vital step through our AAL scholarships.

The AAL Scholarship Fund awarded eight local students with $5,000 scholarships for the 2023–2024 academic year. Click here to learn more and apply.
