Empowering Communities
Across the U.S.

The National Institute & Association For Minorities (NIAM) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Founded in 2016, our mission is to support underprivileged youth, women and minorities.

About NIAM

We are a community made up of diverse backgrounds who have come together for one mission: to strengthen the communities that we live in.

We hope that those who we service will someday grow to become leaders in their own community. Make a difference in your own community with the support of NIAM.
