Meet Abdul-Kareem Muhammad, our Administrative Coordinator. Kareem joined the SCR team almost 4 years ago looking for an opportunity to apply his finance skills and experience to an organization that relentlessly works for the benefit of the Harlem community.
Since working at SCR, Kareem has gained a newfound respect for the many individuals in City government working earnestly to improve the lives of NYC residents through programs like Cure Violence & the Crisis Management System. He notes that the work they are doing, utilizing government programs to address vital needs in communities across NYC, is not only necessary, but oftentimes thankless.
While Kareem came to SCR with a host of valuable skills, he admits he’s learned quite a bit on the job, including automated time and attendance, drafting employee policy, budgeting and grant writing all great skills to add to your workplace tool kit.
Some of his most memorable moments include; SCR events like the Health and Wellness Fair, Peace Café and Grand Opening of Office at 145th Street. Kareem is a proud SCR staff member and enjoys interacting with staff and participants, especially witnessing their success.
If asked, Kareem will tell you he is most passionate about his faith and having a positive impact on the community. If you’re ever in the area stop by and say hello. He’s one for the first faces you’ll see.
