On Tuesday, March 21, scholars, families and staff arrived at 2050 Second Avenue to the sight of our beautiful #BuildLove banner displayed on the side of the building. The EHTP school and after-school community had spent weeks working with legendary East Harlem artist, Manny Vega, to create this massive public artwork to show East Harlem and the nation that while we may have different backgrounds, we are brought together and made stronger by a commitment to inclusivity and our common humanity.
The five-story banner features the flag of Mexico, other flags representing our students’ nationalities, symbols of inclusion, and the hashtag #BuildLove. The flags are stitched together to celebrate the wonderful diversity of our community, New York City, and the United States. It shows our firm belief that we can only realize our best possible selves by building love and understanding.
“During this political climate, our students and families need to hear our voices of love and support more than ever. We can’t support our students if we don’t support who they are and where they’re from,” said Jeff Ginsburg, Executive Director. “We’re celebrating that New York City is an immigrant city.”
Support our scholars and families. Join our project to build love, and not walls, by using the template here to make your own sign and share it on social media using #BuildLove. (Or get creative and show how you #BuildLove any way you want!)

Yesterday we successfully kicked off EHTP’s after-school programs as new and returning scholars filled the halls of our classrooms excited and ready to learn!
Elementary scholars chanted “If we succeed, I succeed” during their afternoon round-up, middle schoolers showed off their Core Value ‘Courage’ during fun ice breaker activities, and our high school students worked on their college applications throughout the evening.
We’re off to a great start and looking forward to the year ahead.
Come visit and see for yourself!
Today, the halls of East Harlem Scholars Academies are filled with laughter and excitement as new and returning scholars meet their teachers and classmates on their first week of school. With warm greetings at the front door, proud parents observing morning meetings, and scholars already eagerly participating in lessons, the school year is off to a great start!
This year, Scholars Academies added four elementary classrooms and for the first time, 2 Pre-K classrooms! We plan on adding a grade level every year, eventually serving grades Pre-K-12. Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with our progress!
