Since 1958, East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) has been working to support students as they become leaders in their communities and realize their best possible selves. We do this because we are committed to promoting a just society, free from oppression and bigotry.
As an organization, we recognize that people who have been historically marginalized because of their race, class, gender, age, ability, religion, and sexual orientation, experience systemic inequalities. Many of the people in our diverse commuity of scholars, families, staff, supporters, and the surrounding East Harlem community live at the intersection of these identities.
Founded in the living room of a local resident, EHTP has since grown into a multi-site after-school program for traditional public school students and a public charter schools operator focused on significantly increasing the college graduation rate in East Harlem. As a place of growth and learning, EHTP aims to serve as an agent of change and thoughtfully contribute to the national fight for racial equity.
