East Harlem Tutorial Program

About the organization

East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) began in 1958 as a children's reading group and has since grown into a multi-site after-school program for traditional public school students and a network of public charter schools focused on significantly increasing the college graduation rate in East Harlem. We are on track to serve at least 25% of East Harlem students by 2025, with enrollment for this year at approximately 2200 students in our schools and after school programs. In 2020, 99% of our seniors were accepted to college, and our current scholars in college are on-track to graduate at eight times the national average of their peers.


Serving as a member of the senior executive team, and reporting to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the CFAO manages our $38MM budget, leads our finance, operations, and human resources teams, and oversee the day-to-day central operations office of the organization, including the strategic and mission-aligned allocation of resources to best serve organization priorities.

The CFAO also provides strategic leadership, analysis and forecasting on new and creative revenue opportunities, our various legal entities and our long term growth and sustainability. The CFAO partners with the Chief Development Officer to manage philanthropic gifts and grants, capital campaign financing, and donor reconciliation. The CFAO partners closely with the CEO and Superintendent/Chief Academic Officer, works with our boards and finance committees, and collaborates on matters of strategic and operational planning, organizational change, business decision-making, and the overall leadership of EHTP.
