Founded in 1997, Figure Skating in Harlem, Inc. provides Harlem girls with vital educational and fitness opportunities to promote a healthy lifestyle and encourage academic achievement. On the ice, the students experience the joys of skating, improve their health and fitness, and develop valuable life skills, such as focus, discipline, teamwork, and goal setting. Off the ice, the students engage in hours of extra class work that strengthen core academic skills and boost academic achievement, so they are able to graduate from high school and succeed at a four-year college. This work is made possible in part through the generous support provided by CCS.
