For more than 30 years, the Harlem Educational Activities Fund (HEAF), has helped children and families bridge economic and educational disparities with academic enrichment, social and emotional development, mentoring, career exposure and college prep. We have a long-standing track record of delivering strong, permanent outcomes in excess of NYC and national averages. 100% of our students graduate high school on time and are admitted into college.
HEAF’s programs and support have been even more essential during the COVID-19 pandemic, as NYC’s underserved populations were disproportionally affected by an educational crisis fueled by the digital divide. Our staff provide students and families with engaging programs and individualized support. In addition to exceptional virtual programming, with classes and activities like Students in Action, Learning for Social Impact, Graphic Design, Youth Development, Chess and Industry Immersion career exposure and mentoring, we also ensure social justice is addressed in class discussions so our students have opportunities to express their opinions and share their concerns in a safe space.
HEAF makes an 11-year commitment to its students, beginning in the 6th grade and staying with them all the way through college graduation.
