Harlem RBI is a non-profit, community-based, youth development program for over 700 youth, ages 6-21, in East Harlem, New York. The organization uses baseball and softball, and the power of teams, to provide inner-city youth with the opportunities to play, to learn and to grow, inspiring them to recognize their potential and realize their dreams. Harlem RBI's DreamWorks program focuses more specifically on college admissions and career planning for high school juniors and seniors.
Because members of the Emerging Leaders are young professionals under 35, they felt teenage students had an easier time relating to them.
