By addressing the needs of we at AIREE refer to “Resource Deserts," we will work to help change the narrative for low to mid-income African American communities throughout the U.S.
Resource Deserts - Areas that have a lack of funding, skills, education, jobs and other assets that help drawn individuals and organizations to an area in efforts to thrive and function effectively)
Together with the support of our corporate partners, who are committed to providing their financial capital as well as their human capital (mentorship, volunteering, and skills training), we will work to award up to 13% of the mentorship and internship opportunities for each project, to African American men and women in the communities, and give them the tools they need to start their own business, mentor others, or qualify for a job in the construction and service sectors of real estate.
