State of Play Harlem Release

The State of Play: Harlem report was released on April 17th at Community Board 11's Full Board meeting. More than a year in the making, the report is the first comprehensive analysis of how well youth in East Harlem are being served through sports. The report was guided by a task force of local leaders and youth leadership council and features results from a survey of over 1,500 youth, 40 findings on strengths and gaps in providing access to sport, five major recommendations, one big "Game Changer" opportunity, and 24 sector-specific, crowd-sourced ideas that stakeholders can collectively act on. The State of Play: Harlem also highlights custom maps of the East Harlem study area and an economic and health impact assessment from the Global Obesity Prevention Center at Johns Hopkins University.

Project Play: Harlem Huddle

On January 23, 2018 the Aspen Institute convened local leaders, community members and youth at the Project Play: Harlem Huddle to discuss ways the community can work together to grow the quality and quantity of sport options for East Harlem youth. We were honored to host U.S. Representative Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) as keynote.

Participants of the Huddle received a draft of State of Play: Harlem, a forthcoming report that includes results from a survey we conducted of more than 1,500 local youth. Through out the day workshop sessions brought attendees together to brainstorm solutions for a path forward based on our report findings

For more information about how to get involved, email Ranya Bautista. Check-out photos from the Project Play: Harlem Huddle on our Photos page or on Twitter at #ProjectPlayHarlem.

Special thank you to Congressman Espaillat, our partners, Mount Sinai Health System, Harris Family Charitable Foundation, and Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, and all those who participated.
