The Harlem Educational Activities Fund, Inc., or HEAF, is a college preparatory and youth leadership organization that works to help motivated minority students in Harlem, Washington Heights and the Bronx develop the intellectual curiosity, academic ability, social values and personal resilience they need to ensure success in school, career and life. HEAF identifies students in middle school and supports them until they are successfully admitted to four-year colleges through a variety of after-school, Saturday and summer educational and youth development programs. Over 90% of HEAF students go onto four-year colleges and universities compared with the state average of roughly 54% for all high school students. Seventy-one percent of these college students completed their baccalaureate studies in 5 years or less compared with a national average of roughly 30% for most African American and Latino students.
