Harlem Children's Zone

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 22,000 children and adults in Central Harlem. HCZ’s high standards and expectations are the same for all children in our pipeline of best practice programs — including our Promise Academy charter schools — ensuring that each is on track to attend college and successfully graduate. Our overarching 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. Nationally and internationally recognized for its early and progressive intervention programs, HCZ has been lauded by The New York Times as “one of the most ambitious social-policy experiments of our time.”
