Harlem World Magazine Cares has its roots in our first action with Susan Taylor and Harlem Cares, then we created Harlem Youth Publishing Empowerment (H.Y.P.E.), with partner Columbia University.
Today, as we live have survived Black Lives Matter, we live with COVID-19, we an opportunity for us to help the community that has helped us so much since our founding in 2003, we re-launch Harlem World Magazine Cares (HWM Cares).
H.Y.P.E. (Harlem Youth Publishing Empowerment)
H.Y.P.E. aims to target Harlem minority youth, who have an interest in the publishing industry and or want to explore an optional route to education and or career. The program will be a ten-week after-school and mid-day Saturday program beginning the third week of the fall and spring semesters. Youth will be introduced to the publishing industry through 3-5 hour workshops. At the end of the ten-week session, students attend a field trip to a publishing company or college.

Harlem World Magazine was established in 2010, with Columbia University’s, Institute for Urban and Minority Education, IUME with assistant Director, Veronica Holly and Research Assistant/Project Manager-Nneka R. Ibekwe. The study resulted in a report that according to Lenhart et al. (2005), in 2001, 24% of youth aged 12-17 used some form of technology, and in 2005; the use of technology grew to 87%.
The report focused on:
Clear identification of the mentoring needs of the target population
Development of effective and sustainable mentoring opportunities to address the shortcomings and gaps in the existing support and service
The establishment of Harlem World Magazine Cares is one successful and sustaining solution to what’s hurting Black America.
