ACH Clear Pathways is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) committed to providing enriching and new experiences to youth and families through visual and performing arts. We recognize the uniqueness of each person and are committed to providing an inclusive environment where everyone is welcome, respected and appreciated.   


Tyian Battle founded ACH Clear Pathways out of her own heartbreak in 2009, Tyian lost her son, Amon C. Harris, who passed away at age 7 due to an (congenital heart defect) undiagnosed heart condition. Amon loved the arts, and Tyian wanted to honor Amon’s memory in a way that provides access to the arts as well as a platform for youth to learn how to manage and express their emotions in a healthy way. Amon’s legacy lives on through Tyian’s passion and the work of ACH Clear Pathways students.


The Hill District neighborhood in Pittsburgh (home of ACH Clear Pathways) was founded on a deep history of the arts, including being the epicenter of Pittsburgh’s jazz and blues scene. Not to mention, it was the birthplace of August Wilson, the legendary Pulitzer Prize winning playwright. Learn more about ACH Clear Pathways here.
