Their mission is to give underserved youth the skills and support they need to be fearless in life. They use soccer as the means to connect with young people both on and off the field. Through sport, they instill resilience, integrity, responsibility, compassion and a team mentality. Through academic and leadership programs, they deliver knowledge and experiences that propel young people to new levels of success. They serve youth in Harlem, Washington Heights and Bronx with a particular focus on our Black and Latino population.
Their vision is to envision a world in which all young people are entirely free to build successful, fulfilling lives; a world where they are encouraged and fully prepared to become global citizens, confident leaders and role models to their peers.

Harlem residents have launched a petition on Change.org to bring Citibikes to Harlem. Harlem was not included in the initial rollout. Nor is Harlem included in current expansion plans.
This exclusion does not make sense. See below for salient points from the petition.
While the City is cold and mired in snow, now is the time to ask for what Harlem deserves, so there’s a chance Harlem will have it to enjoy as soon as possible, ideally by this Spring.

The Superbowl kicks off the first weekend of Black History month. And what better time for General Mills to air it’s second Cheerios add featuring an interracial family.
A few months ago General Mills aired the first commercial “featuring a manly black actor as father, a serene white mother and their charming interracial seven-year-old, Gracie”. It triggered a torrent of hatred on line. So much so that General Mills had to disable comments on YouTube. Undaunted, at this weekend’s Superbowl Cheerios is sponsoring a second commercial. This one includes news of a baby brother on the way. Below are the two videos plus a third that shows how kids reacted to the first.
Love and diversity and paving new pathways is something for which Harlem has always been known. Let’s embrace that heroic tradition.
Join us in celebrating the airing of this add during the Superbowl on Sunday.
The kids react
