Mission Statement

Doing whatever it takes to educate children and strengthen the community.

Description

Harlem Children?s Zone, Inc (HCZ) is a multi-site, multi-program community organization that provides a unique and comprehensive interlocking network of education, social and health services, and recreation to more than 21,000 children and adults in Central Harlem. Its goal is to create a "tipping point" in the neighborhood so that children are surrounded by an enriching environment of college-oriented peers and supportive adults. HCZ is nationally and internationally recognized for its early and progressive intervention programs, and has been called ?one of the most ambitious social-policy experiments of our time? by The New York Times. The mission of HCZ Promise Academy Charter School is to provide a first-rate, year-round, extended-day K-12 school for students living in under-performing school districts. All children and their families have access to the full array of supportive services of the Harlem Children's Zone community network. We are looking for devoted professionals who share our passion for children and want to join in our mission to enhance their lives.
