Educate Us

Help us understand the State of Play for youth in East Harlem, as part of a custom report, authored by the Aspen Institute, that will identify 40 key findings on the availability of the quality and quantity of sport activity and offer recommendations that stakeholders can use to improve access. If you serve children in the area, or are a parent/caregiver, please share your insights in the following survey:


Grade the State of Play

The Aspen Institute Sports & Society Program is partnering with Mount Sinai Health System, Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, and Harris Family Charitable Foundation to assess the landscape of youth sports (through age 17) across East Harlem. In the end, we will share insights in a “State of Play” report, which will be used to guide a series of roundtables and activation efforts. 

As stakeholders (administrators, coaches, parents/guardians, educators, those who are otherwise involved with youth sports, or community members), we want to know what grade you would give East Harlem in providing quality sport activity to all kids, regardless of zip code or ability.

Please share your grade by completing the following survey. You also will be asked to offer grades in each of the eight “plays” or areas of opportunity, as defined by the Aspen Institute’s Project Play. Grades will be averaged and included in the report. Inflated and overly critical grades do not serve the assessment, so please, answer honestly.

For more information on each "play," referenced below, please refer to the Project Play report (opens in a new window):
