Inner Force, Inc. is led by Dr. Garey Ellis, a medical physician and Executive Director. Born and raised in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Dr. Ellis taught in the New York City public school system, dedicating his life to making math and science educational opportunities available to children from the community. In the community for over 14 years, Inner Force is a non-profit organization bordering Crown Heights, Brownsville and Bedford-Stuyvesant, serving children and families from those areas. Our mission is to improve inner city communities by helping children succeed in school and beyond; Inner Force’s programs target low-income and minority elementary, middle and high school children in New York City’s public schools. Inner Force’s after school programs offer children educational, recreational and cultural activities. The organization also provides guidance and training for parents on how to monitor, become more involved in, and advocate for their children’s education. Inner Force has received a variety of community and media acknowledgements, including a feature on the WABC TV “Children First Program”; recipient of the WCBS TV “Dr. Martin Luther King’s Fulfilling the Dream” Award; and UPK press conference with Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYC Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina.
