Mission Statement

The Harlem Empowerment Project offers a holistic education and career approach to help program participants, their families, and by extension the local community, work towards economic stability. We achieve this through collaboration with job seekers, school personnel, vocational and community partners, and employers. With an emphasis on literacy, education, and vocational skills we work with individuals to create a timeline to success that meets their needs. In this way, we empower communities for economic growth and social strength. HEP embraces the diversity of our program participants. Each individual is unique and deserves to be treated with care and respect. All matters are handled with the highest standards of confidentiality.

Description

Harlem Empowerment Project is a school-based organization located in Harlem and the Bronx. We work through the public schools and other community organizations to offer career and education services for all adults in the community. We hold ESL classes for a wide range of levels, from Basic Adult Literacy to High Intermediate; GED/HSE, job-skills classes and workshops (computer literacy, etc.); and career counseling and placement.
