Description: Helping inner city youth through Baseball. Harlem RBI gives youth the opportunity to Play, Learn, and Grow. It uses the team aspect of baseball to empower its participants to realize their potential and strive towards it. The organization envisions its graduates to be healthy and educated citizens motivated about making an impact on society.

How it started: In 1991, a few volunteers wanted to provide youth in East Harlem with the opportunity to play baseball. They transformed an abandoned garbage zone into two new baseball diamonds. Since then, Harlem RBI has helped with the local youth both on and off the diamond.

Its Values: TeamworkRespectDiversityPromiseEffortIntegrity and, of course, Fun!

The DreamList for its graduates:

  • PHYSICALLY HEALTHY
  • CONFIDENT, COMPETENT AND CARING
  • ACTIVE CITIZENS
  • WORK-READY
  • HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES
  • COLLEGE GRADUATES
  • TEAMMATES, FRIENDS AND FAMILY
