About East Harlem Tutorial Program
East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) began in 1958 as a children's reading group hosted by a community member in her living room. It has since grown into a multi-site after-school program for public school students and a charter school operator focused on significantly increasing the college graduation rate in East Harlem. Between our after-school programs and charter schools, more than 15,000 East Harlem youth and their families have walked through our doors – and, by participating in our year-long, free programs, they have improved their academic skills, developed confidence, and found community. EHTP is on track to serve at least 20 percent of all public school students in East Harlem by 2020.
