Incorporated: 1991 in NY
Harlem RBI’s unique brand of youth development programming serves more than 1,000 East Harlem boys and girls, ages 5-22, with year-round after-school, summer and school day programs. Harlem RBI’s approach to youth development and education addresses the barriers inner-city youth typically face by providing concrete opportunities to build the skills and confidence needed to break the cycle of poverty. All Harlem RBI participants play on a baseball or softball team, which serves both as a “hook” to attract youth participation and as a tool to help youth develop as leaders, teammates and friends. Harlem RBI’s off-the-field activities consist of a series of age-appropriate, team-based after-school and summer programs that change over time as participants grow from year to year. Programs are free of charge and open to all participants regardless of athletic or academic ability. Once youth join Harlem RBI, they are a part of a safe, supportive and engaging environment where they can play, learn and grow until they graduate from high school and enroll in college.
