Harlem Children Society is a nonprofit organization that aims to develop a society for a better humanity by creating awareness in scientific literacy and social issues. Harlem Children Society is a 5 year old summer “bridge program” that provides paid internships at leading scientific and medical institutions for select high school students (9-12) from low-income areas in New York City and the tri-state area and nationally. Students are paired with mentors, who are top professionals in their field, and train and work on specific projects. The program identifies under-resourced and under-served communities, targets at-risk children and youth in those communities and provides them an opportunity to explore the world and their future through science, thereby helping to revitalize the community as a whole.

Over the past 5 years, HCS has grown exponentially – increasing enrollment from 3 students from 2 high schools guided by one mentor in 2000 to 105 students from 40 schools, guided by over 125 mentors in 45 institutions this year. All students receive a stipend $1,500 - $1,750. HCS’s rate of success is exemplified in the number of former students who have gone on to top colleges, including Rutgers, Dartmouth, Penn State, UMDNJ, Swarthmore and Cornell University. In addition, Harlem Children Society has been honored for its level of accomplishment with many awards, including, a $30,000 New York Times Scholarship, Four Year American Chemical Society Scholarships, Jersey Journal Betty Foley Memorial Award, Hudson Regional Health Commission Award, The United States Army, Navy & Air Force Certificate of Achievement Award and 1st place in New Jersey Biomedical Cancer Research Symposium at Rider University.

Harlem Children Society Founder, Dr. Sat Bhattacharya, PhD who has earned his reputation as a sought after research scientist at the renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, says that this fair “is keeping the dream alive in Harlem that science can be fun and exciting and that all children should have access to the knowledge that prepares them to be successful entrepreneurs and productive world citizens”. Bhattacharaya, an immigrant from India, started Harlem Children Society with Harlem in mind, as more than a geographical location; but as a symbol of the drive to succeed and to achieve your dreams. Harlem Children Society is keeping the dream alive and well, with its dedication to promoting an innovative science education program for children and youth living in under-resourced and under-served communities and school districts. It seeks to empower the youth of tomorrow with the skills to pursue higher education and career achievement and to give back to their communities by becoming innovate entrepreneurs and productive world citizens.
