Harlem Educational Activities Fund Founder Daniel Rose Proud of His After-School Program
See a complete archive or Daniel Rose's videos.
Rose is proud of the work he has done with the HEAF youth through the years, remembering fondly how he and his wife have stayed in touch with many of them. For example, Rose shared how one young woman—whom he still remembered very clearly as a little girl—invited him and his wife to a military base in Virginia for her big day. After two tours of duty in Iraq and another in Afghanistan, she was being promoted to U.S. Army major. "She's now in her 30s and she's a major in the Army, clearly destined for great things," says Rose. "They're sending her back to schools and that's our legacy—our legacy is the kids going on to do great things.”
