5. We offer generous benefits
As a member of the Harlem Children’s Zone family, you will join a supportive and inclusive community dedicated to helping children, families — and our staff — thrive.
We offer highly competitive salaries, a comprehensive benefits package, opportunities for growth, and college tuition reimbursement for our full-time Promise Academy staff.
6. We offer plenty of opportunities to grow your career
Justin Maker joined HCZ in 2011 as a Human Resources recruitment manager. A year later, he moved up to Assistant Director and three years later, to Director of the department. Today he sits on our Executive Team as the Senior Managing Director of HR. Justin is among the more than half of HCZ executives who were promoted from within the organization.
At HCZ, we put a premium on employee growth. In addition to generous benefits, we work with our staff to hone their strengths, foster their ambitions, and ultimately, succeed in their careers. And if you ever choose to transition from HCZ (although we hope you’ll stick around!), the experience you’ve gained here can take you anywhere — even outside of the nonprofit, education, and social services sectors.
7. You’ll be a part of something bigger than yourself
To be part of HCZ is to be part of something bigger than yourself. When you join our organization, you join a community of professionals, young people, and families on a journey toward the same goal. It doesn’t matter your role or your department — everyone here is fighting for the same thing.
Each year, HCZ serves over 34,000 children and their families each year here in Harlem. We partner with organizations to scale our model across the country. We develop new innovations to revolutionize the way we fight poverty. Each and every one of our employees makes that work possible.
