About Us

The Renaissance Youth Center (formerly Renaissance-EMS) is a South Bronx-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Founded in 2001 by Bervin Harris and Darren Quinlan, the organization is dedicated to maximizing the potential of at-risk, inner-city youth to become law abiding citizens with something positive to offer society.

Renaissance serves over 1,200 youths every single week, offering programs in 12 public schools, 8 community-based organizations, three satellite after-school sites, and our 10,000 square feet center on Third Avenue. Our programs work with students holistically, teaching them skills in the arts or athletics, and delivering social development and academic enrichment through mentoring, tutoring, and SAT prep.

Since 2012, Renaissance and its programs have been honored by the Bronx Borough President, the New York Police Department, and the New York Yankees, and have appeared in the Huffington Post, Bronx 12 News, and a national commercial by Citgo.
