Mission Statement

AD99 Solutions was founded in 2019 by three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and Pittsburgh native Aaron Donald. Growing up in Pittsburgh's Lincoln-Lemington-Belmar neighborhood, Aaron saw firsthand the positive impact athletics had on him and his peers. Also recognizing the importance of accessibility to quality education, good nutrition, and community involvement, Aaron sought to launch an organization that prepares Pittsburgh's underprivileged youth for life-long success. The mission of AD99 Solutions is to change the trajectory of Pittsburgh's most vulnerable youth by providing necessary resources in a free, safe environment where they can be empowered to excel academically, socially, and athletically.


AD99 Solutions offers two programs - Prep Forward and Community Engagement. Prep Forward is a preparatory training program offered to select African American student-athletes, ages 13-18 throughout Allegheny County. The curriculum bridges the gap between traditional education and the real world. The aim is to holistically prepare students and their families for the rigors of higher education, the demands of an evolving job market, and the complexities of the changing world.

While Prep Forward admits up to 10 students into the cohort yearly, the Community Engagement program allows for a much further reach. The goals of the program are two-fold - to contribute to underprivileged youth's holistic development, helping them become well-adjusted contributors to society; and to support communities through education, advocacy, and resource allocation by partnering with national companies, local businesses, schools, and organizations with similar interest in empowering youth.
