SCAN-Harbor Executive Director Lew Zuchman was featured in a lengthy profile this week by NYN Media. The feature included many insights on work at SCAN-Harbor, and what makes the organization special:
“We empower people to move up, encourage them to get their high school and college degrees. Many of our staff came to us without high school diplomas and now have masters degrees. We work with street gangs, whether or not we’re asked to. We don’t believe our young people are violent – they just grow up in a violent world. So we reach them from a positive angle”
The article touches on Mr. Zuchman’s own life, his work as a civil rights activist, and how he initially came to SCAN-Harbor.
