2013: BUILDING ON WINS
This year, our colleague and friend Vince Coleman moved on from his position as Baseball and Softball Program Director to rise to new challenges in community service as an ordained minister. Throughout his 15 years at Harlem RBI, Vince demonstrated that hard work and perseverance make it possible to realize our dreams. As Vince courageously steps onto a new playing field, we will continue to apply his lessons here at home.
In the pages of this 2013 Annual Report, Coach Vince Coleman's core principles of the ballgame come to life as we share them alongside the stories and experiences of our Harlem RBI and DREAM family. And what an amazing year it's been! Harlem RBI was again voted one of the "Best NonProfits to Work For" by The NonProfit Times. Our youth excelled as 100 percent of our seniors graduated high school and our senior boys made it to the RBI World Series. We provided more young people than ever before with opportunities to Play, Learn and Grow by opening DREAM Middle School and setting up shop in the South Bronx. And we continue to learn and grow as an organization?to expand our vision, improve our operations and connect more deeply with the communities we serve.
We look forward to what 2014 will bring and hope you'll continue to stay close and experience the magic with us. From all of us at Harlem RBI and DREAM Charter School, we wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous year ahead.
