Research & Education, College Preparation, Retention & Skill Development for At-Risk Youth

Harlem Children Society (URL: www.HCS2k.org) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting an Innovative Science Education Program for Children and Youth living in under-resourced and under-served communities and school districts. We seek to engage learners in a healthy enquiry of the world, and to expose them to opportunities that are available in the field of science. We seek to emphasize their pursuit of higher education and career achievement by providing them with knowledge, skills, guidance, encouragement, and understanding.
Harlem Children Society (HCS) is a Fifteen Year (15) old “bridge program” that provides an opportunity for extremely high level of scientific research at leading scientific and medical institutions for select high school (Grades 8-12) and Under-Graduate students from low-income areas in New York City, the Tristate area, across the country nationally, and a Global program in several countries in all continents. Students are paired with mentors, who are top professionals in their field, and train and work on specific projects. The program identifies under-resourced and under-served communities, targets at-risk children and youth in those communities, and provides them an opportunity to explore the world and their future through science, thereby helping to revitalize the community as a whole. The organizations also serve to be a catalyst for change through recognizing inventors and invention, promoting creativity, and advancing the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. We are committed to fostering the inventive spirit, developing creative products, programs, and partnerships that emphasize the importance of invention in society.
