Description

Health Leads is a student organization that unites doctors and social workers, Columbia undergrads, and families from Harlem, Washington Heights, and the Bronx in an attempt to interrupt the well-established link between poverty and poor health. Project HEALTH programs are student-developed and student-run, and they provide an excellent opportunity to develop strong relationships with families, children, and other community members. Project HEALTH runs 5 programs at the Harlem YMCA and the Harlem Hospital Center during the year, as well as over the summer.

Volunteer Commitment: This varies depending on the program which the volunteer chooses
