Who We Are
HARLEM UNITED is a youth empowerment nonprofit organization with a strong, educational leadership program that utilizes basketball to engage underprivileged inner city youth. Our hands-on program provides peer mentoring, academic tutoring, and assistance with school and college placement for students attending under-resourced institutions in the Bronx and Harlem. With basketball and a reward incentive program, we provide services to over 70 underprivileged students year round through individual and group mentoring.
It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference
It is our mission to educate and empower the youth of Harlem through academic achievement and character growth. We are developing scholar athletes who will be the leaders of tomorrow.
