Our Urban University Summer Campers Needs Your Support!

The African American Youth Harvest Foundation is committed to serving our youth this summer. Our focus is to address out-of-school time for our youth to remain on track when they return to school. We had an overwhelming number of students, over 200, with a pending waiting list. We realize the importance of this camp because it allows the parents to know their children are in a safe environment, receive additional educational knowledge, and exposed to field trips to enhance their learning. We did not want our youth to miss this opportunity or place undue hardship on our parents by not providing this safe place for their children.


The camp is going well, and the youth are having a wonderful time. However, we need additional financial support to bring in additional staff, provide hot meals and assist with field trips.

Our Goal is $35,000

Can you make a donation today?


We are thankful to Huston Tillotson University because they were able to accommodate us with the increased enrollment.


If you can provide any assistance, please contact Michael Lofton at 512-585-6696 or email, or you can donate online at or text a donation to 77948, the word “CHANGE”.
