The Boys and Girls Club of Harlem (BGCHarlem)
was founded in 1980 with the purpose of providing a safe, positive, and supportive place for youth which fosters learning and quality relationships, which can have a significant impact on their lives. Also of paramount importance at the time, BGCHarlem founders set out to create a community-focused organization that would uphold high ethical standards in all areas, especially in overseeing organizational finances, reporting data on membership and community outreach efforts, while being good stewards of donor dollars and representing itself to the public with the highest of standards.

I want these children to be able to see that people who look like them can be superheroes, royalty, and more.
