New York property developer and philanthropist Daniel Rose talks about the acclaimed Harlem Educational Activities Fund he founded in 1989 and which has helped young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to successfully apply to and graduate from leading US colleges and universities.

The Harlem Educational Activities Fund is a mentoring programme that guides inner city children towards becoming college graduates. Its approach is based on instilling values and student learning rather than on the quality of teaching. Around 90% of its students have gone on to colleges and universities and graduated successfully. The junior high school chess teams in Harlem have ranked first in the nation.

Rose is chairman of Rose Associates Inc, the property development and management business. He has developed properties such as the award-winning Pentagon City complex in Arlington and the One Financial Center office tower in Boston. He has also served as an expert adviser to the Secretary, US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and as consultant to the Commissioner of Education, US Department of Health, Education and Welfare. He endowed the Daniel Rose Chair in Urban Economics at MIT – America’s first in urban economics.
