The Association of Haitian Professionals (AHP), a 501c(6) DC nonprofit corporation, promotes the professional development, educational advancement, and socio-economic enhancement of people of Haitian descent. By expanding the reach and widening the influence of Haitian professionals, AHP seeks to reverse the effects of intellectual dispersion, community and cultural deterioration, and economic disempowerment by fostering a commitment to community service, increasing educational opportunities, and encouraging knowledge- and skills-sharing throughout the Haitian community.
As a non-profit entity dedicated to community improvement, the objectives of the AHP are as follows:
- To coordinate professional development opportunities for people of Haitian descent;
- To support the development of educational, leadership, and scholarship opportunities for students of Haitian descent;

AHP has five (5) core values, which we affectionately term the P.R.I.C.E. model. In our view, this model encompasses the most fundamental reasons for AHP™s existence now and into the future.

To achieve these goals, AHP seeks to enrich the lives of its members and the Haitian community by:
(1) Organizing professional development programs, networking functions, discussion groups, and other forums to facilitate the exchange of ideas, information and skills amongst its members, Haitian communities worldwide, and the public at-large;
(2) Establishing and coordinating mentoring opportunities, educational scholarships, and tutoring programs for students of Haitian descent;
