As the largest youth service provider in East Harlem and the South Bronx, SCAN supports "at risk" children and their families to achieve positive life goals.
Now is the time.
Our diverse programs empower high-risk youth and their families by focusing on strengths, skills, and self-esteem. SCAN facilitates empowerment goals through the establishment of a family and community matrix. Our “SCAN family” affords an integrated, positive mixture of youth development programming and mentorship.

SCAN’s East Harlem Expansion Continues
New contracts have enabled us to open two additional centers in East Harlem.
We now run a total of six Cornerstone centers in the community. The two new Cornerstone centers, at Lehman Village on Madison Avenue and East 108th St., and at Dewitt Clinton Houses on Lexington Avenue and East 110th St., opened last year. They join our four other sites — East River Houses, Jackie Robinson Houses, King Towers, and Wagner Houses — which together span an area between East 103rd and East 129th Street.
