bai Gala & Sponsorship Opportunities:


 

Each year hundreds of community and business leaders join the Harlem YMCA to honor the achievements of professionals. Since 1971, this annual event has paid national tribute to the corporate leadership and community service of Achievers in Industry and continues to serve as a vehicle for the Harlem YMCA, corporations, and local organizations to partner and provide mentoring programs, scholarships, and other opportunities. These collective efforts fuel a future-leader incubator for the youth and teens of the Harlem community.

“Achievers in Industry is a vital program that encompasses youth mentoring programs, college scholarships, a historically black college tour, corporate internships and year-long community outreach,” says Tiffeny Forrest, Vice President of Operations, YMCA of Greater NY. “This annual gala affords all of our community stakeholders with the opportunity to come together to celebrate their accomplishments and inspire the next generation of leaders.”

The Harlem YMCA will host the 47th Annual Achievers in Industry (bai) Gala on Thursday, March 23, 2017, at the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel.  The gala—which in the past has attracted luminaries like Oprah Winfrey—is a major date on NYC’s business, philanthropic, education, and social calendars. The event pays national tribute to excellence in corporate leadership and community service by Achievers in Industry and serves as a platform for the Harlem YMCA, corporations, and local organizations to partner and provide mentoring programs, scholarships, and other opportunities. These collective efforts are helping the young people of New York City’s Harlem community grow to be tomorrow’s leaders.  Sponsorship Opportunities are as follows:
