About 5 years ago, I discovered the Harlem Educational Activities Fund by accident, a very lucky accident for me. HEAF is an after-school academic enrichment program for college-bound high school students ... and it works! I’ve met dozens of HEAF students & taught news writing and college essay writing classes. These young people are — if I may generalize — driven to succeed, ambitious and confident. Thanks to HEAF, they graduate high school even better prepared to realize their dreams. HEAF is the Real Deal! Please join me in supporting this great organization.
