Who We Are:
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.
At EHTP we also aim to serve as an agent of change and thoughtfully contribute to the national fight for racial equity. Through our organization-wide commitment to anti-racism work, we prepare our scholars to effect change, challenge the status quo, and thrive in the world around them. As staff members, we face our own racial identities and conscious and unconscious biases. With this in mind, all of our professional development, curriculum, organizational materials, and processes are designed with a goal of racial justice. Read our racial equity statement here.
We ground all of our work in racial equity, in our core values, and in our four guiding pursuits: the Revolutionary Pursuit of Love, the Radical Pursuit of Knowledge, the Responsive Pursuit of Healing, and in the Relentless Pursuit of Results. These pursuits inform and are reflected in our current four key strategic priorities: to increase high-impact, high-quality academic curriculum, programming content, staff capacity, and coaching; to embrace and advance our use of technology; to deepen our embodiment of ethical and equitable radical humanity; and to efficiently operationalize teaching, learning, community, and care.
About The Opportunity:
As our growing organization becomes increasingly more complex, we are seeking a Chief Finance & Administrative Officer (CFAO) to set the vision for the coordination and cohesion of our operational and financial work, ensuring that all of our non-instructional work is as deeply rooted in our mission, equitable practice, student-centeredness, and radical humanity and enhances teaching and learning.
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.
