About Us

Figure Skating in Harlem helps girls transform their lives and grow in confidence, leadership and academic achievement. We are the only organization for girls of color that combines the power of education with access to the artistic discipline of figure skating to build champions in life.

From the Founder & CEO

FSH began more than 25 years ago with a vision to empower young girls in the Harlem community. Our hope is that through each student’s experience, she will graduate our program as a powerful speaker, effective leader, and global citizen. Now in Detroit, we hope to bring the benefits of our model education and skating based program to even more children!

"Figure Skating in Harlem is a quintessential New York organization. It's about achievement, excellence and community."
- Vera Wang, Fashion Designer
