The LEH Youth Development Center is spearheading a massive online fundraising campaign to raise $1,000,000 this year.

The Louis E. Harris Center is not designed to replace the school curriculum, but a means to reinforce the educational process with continuing afternoon studying and review that usually takes place in a home environment. The Center has experienced tremendous success in offering tutoring services to youth from elementary to high school. Since we’ve been inexistence the Center has provided services to over 300 youth. We anticipate servicing more youth with a new green, technological and energy efficient facility. Many youth have returned to show their appreciation for the tutoring they received and the imprint embedded in their hearts from their experience here at LEH.
Because of the many outside obligations that today’s parents must face, many are unable to meet the everyday challenge of ensuring that the follow-up of home work and studying takes place each and every school day.
The Louis E. Harris Center strives to fill this void by providing adult volunteers who are willing and able to dedicate their free time for this noble purpose. It is in this spirit that the Louis E. Harris Center thrives and hopefully, with donations of time and money, will continue to grow towards fostering a wider, stronger impact in our community. The Center operates under the 501(c) (3) non-profit status.
The Center is spearheading a massive online fundraising drive for 2011; our goal is to raise 1 million dollars to support afterschool math, mentoring and literacy programs and a new sustainable energy efficient green building.

Doris, wife of the late Louis E. Harris and Executive Director of the Louis E. Harris Center for Youth Development, has dedicated herself to the uplifting of school age children through carefully designed mentoring programs that target math and reading with after school workshops. She believes that the earlier a child cements these skills; there is the greater likelihood that the children will be able to apply themselves in situations that require the standard of good English usage. Mrs. Harris completely understands that for any student to compete globally, he or she must also have a basic Math foundation.
