The Harlem Educational Activities Fund (HEAF) is a comprehensive supplemental education and youth development organization that works to help motivated students develop the intellectual curiosity, academic ability, social values, and personal resilience they need to ensure success in school, career, and life. HEAF identifies scholars in middle school and supports them until they graduate from a four-year college through a variety of after-school, Saturday and summer educational and youth development programs.
The YD facilitator will serve as a key facilitator and mentor for HEAF students in grades 6-12. They should aim to provide support, guidance, and an inclusive learning environment where students absorb and interpret new discoveries about themselves and the world around them. YD Facilitators will also collaborate with other co-facilitators and YD staff to provide comprehensive 1-1 mentorship with students, family engagement, and robust planning for YD events.
