The Harlem Children’s Zone was inspired by the insight that low income parents are not exposed to information about the ways they can successfully support their child’s early development. Geoffrey Canada launched a program which molds parents into assets in the lives of their children and then supports and leads those children through every stage of development with an innovative “conveyer belt” model. The first half of the article was written by Paul Tough, a New York Times writer and recent author of a book about the Harlem Children’s Zone. Tough’s piece summarizes the first years of the Zone and looks forward to replication around the country. The second half of the article considers opportunities in which Design Management could support the Zone’s growth and replication.
