To sharpen the networking skills of our college students, we held our annual "Mocktails" event last night at Google's New York offices with professionals from a wide range of fields.

Congratulations, HCZ chess masters!

The Promise Academy 2 HS chess team came in 1st at the DYCD Chess Masters Tournament and individual players—Abdoulaye, Andres, Devaun & Jonthan—won 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th place trophies! James, from our Booker T. Washington Beacon Center, won 2nd place and his teammate, Avion, received a medal for winning 3 of 4 rounds in the junior-high division.

We work with our kids from birth to make sure they love books. This #GivingTuesday we are asking Facebook Friends to help us grow the libraries in all of our Harlem Gems pre-k classrooms.

Our Harlem Gems program is an all-day, year-round experience, so we need lots of books to keep our four-year-olds excited to explore every corner of the world, page by page.

You can make it happen this Giving Tuesday with a generous donation today. https://donate.hcz.org/givingtuesday-2016

Yesterday, 4,000 of HCZ's students marched through the streets of Harlem in our annual Peace March, heading for the Harlem Armory for performances by our children.

It’s our favorite time of year at HCZ — graduation season. The Singleton Harlem Gems Pre-K Class of 2016 celebrated “moving up” to elementary school with a 1950s sock hop theme. ‪#‎FancyFootwork‬ #HappyGraduation

Singer-scholars at Promise Academy I & II received a special visit from opera singer & artist-in-residence at the New York Philharmonic Eric Owens. Not only did Mr. Owens sing for our students & share advice about pursuing their passions but they also got to sing for him—truly making the event a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thank you Mr. Owens for your generosity, warmth & support of our kids!

Rugby and running and bears—oh my! It was a busy weekend for students at Promise Academy 2 and our 2 Beacon Programs. 22 MS students attended the Museum of Natural History’s “Night at the Museum” sleepover, the Booker T. Washington Track Team brought home 12 medals from the NYRR Youth Jamboree, and a Booker T. student won MVP at a Flag Rugby Tournament.
