empowering youth in Harlem, East Harlem and the South BronxSCAN invites you to support our


For more than 40 years, SCAN has been serving at-risk kids in some of the City’s most challenging neighborhoods.

We invite you to support our work empowering youth in Harlem, East Harlem and the South Bronx, during our most important fundraiser of the year.

Today, we are largest provider of youth services in these communities, reaching over 7,000 youth and 1,000 families each year.

With this opportunity there is no actual event –
so 100% of your contribution will go to supporting our many programs!

Your contribution will be put to use immediately, helping thousands of children and families with programs such as:

  • Summer Camps
  • Support for Recent Immigrants
  • Afterschool Activities & Community Centers
  • Youth Mentoring & Leadership Development
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Violence Prevention
  • Workforce Development
  • Street Gang Outreach
  • Substance Abuse Counseling for “high risk” Parents and Families
  • LGBTQ Support
  • Food Pantries & Nutrition Education
  • Reach For The Stars College Bound Program

 empowering youth in Harlem, East Harlem and the South Bronx

Our programs start with the recognition that the children and families we serve are filled with potential – with skills and talents that have yet to be discovered, polished, and realized. The aim of our programs is not to simply solve problems, but to help families and young people to move beyond their problems by building upon their strengths, by literally “reaching for the stars”.

Our 2019 Non-Gala Gala is our most important private fundraising effort, so we hope that you will partner with us and help SCAN to continue its critical mission.

We will miss seeing you this spring, but we’ll be back in 2020 with a wonderful event!
