In 2010, a small group of individuals came together with the goal of doing some good in Harlem, New York. What started as a group teach kids the ins and outs of publishing in their local community, evolved into almost a decade.
The social enterprise Harlem World Cares came about from working in Harlem, NY to promote education through a partnership with (IUME) at Teachers College at Columbia University.
Harlem Youth Publishing Empowerment (HYPE)
Out of that partnership, we created our lead project Harlem Youth Publishing Empowerment (HYPE). Veronica Holly, her great team and an incredible grad student at IUME. The mission at HYPE is to recruit and train Harlem’s next generation of publishers.
In addition, to HYPE we love partnering with non-profits and social enterprises, small and large businesses. In our partnerships, we leverage an organization’s assets, such as relationships with their target population, community, brand, or expertise.
Here are some of the organizations we’ve created projects with in the past:
- National CARES Mentoring Movement
- Columbia University
- The Institute for Urban and Minority Education
- Teachers College, Columbia University,
- Wadleigh Secondary School for the Performing & Visual Arts
- Project STAY, GQ Magazine
- (IUME) at Teachers College at Columbia University
- City College of New York
- Harlem Children’s Zone
- Brooklyn College BCAL Spot
- NYC Small Business Services (SBS)
One of our partnerships was with National CARES Mentoring Movement project with kids from different programs around Harlem with speaker author and ex-Essence Magazine editor-in-chief Susan Taylor (below) and partners at the Harlem State Office Building, on 125th Street in Harlem, New York.
Around the Block, Around the World
We run community projects, work with and help to support local schools, organizations, small businesses, etc., and more in and around Harlem.
Why Community Projects
Community projects are empowering tools to increase awareness through self-reliance, increase access to improve publishing and trade skills and bring people together to create connections amongst neighbors.
We aim to make change …
- In the Harlem community one resident, one family, one non-profit at a time
- In partnership with schools, organizations, social enterprises, business, etc.,
- To benefit local organizations to combat under-funding ….
Make An Investment
Our work would simply not be possible without the generosity of people like you. Your gift will help provide publishing skills for an entire community.
