A FC Harlem LION R.O.A.R.S!
A LION IS:
Limited resources in communities of color put youth at greater risk of becoming disengaged, disconnected, and cut off from pursuing their dreams.
Our youth need access to designated safe spaces to engage with caring mentors who can help them develop to their fullest potential.
FC Harlem really care about us as individuals, they want us to be confident and understand the importance of giving back – Joseph Komora, 14, FC Harlem L.I.O.N FC Harlem is so much more than soccer. It is about community service, empowerment and just understanding what it means to be a young person of color living in the world – Corey Pierce, 21, FC Harlem L.I.O.N Alumni
