Haiti Investment & Education - One Day Symposium
The National Association of Haitian Professionals (NAHP) was created in 2011 as a non-profit organization with the vision of becoming the premier organization dedicated to preparing Haitian professionals in the Diaspora for leadership positions throughout the U.S. The NAHP develops partnerships that result in the creation of intellectual and economic wealth within the Haitian community while creating mentoring opportunities between Haitian professionals and high school or college age students to assist in growing the talent pipeline of professionals in various industries. We remain committed to making a difference in the United States by providing the cultural awareness and sensitivity vital in the management of the nation's diverse workforce, and abroad by building a strong network of Haitian professionals and like-minded organizations to help rebuild Haiti. 
The Joseph Denis Thomas Foundation is dedicated to entrusting the Haitian people to reverse the economic, environmental, health and social effects of deforestation, loss of agriculture, and lack of water system management. Through higher education opportunities, and with strong partnerships and collaboration, the Foundation works towards increased engagement in the development and conservation of natural resources for the benefit of the community.
The New Jersey Haitian Student Association (NJHSA) Alumni Chapter’s purpose is to bring together the collective resources of NJHSA alumni in order to promote education and other services within the community; to maintain a liaison between the alumni; to maintain a continuing supportive relationship with NJHSA, its members, programs and events. The mission of the Alumni Chapter is to foster alumni loyalty, involvement and support.
