ExpandED Pathways

The person standing in front of the classroom has even more impact on student success than the content being taught. Passion, understanding, diversity and commitment are essential qualities in an educator. See below to learn about our initiatives to attract and build capacity of those seeking a career in education and youth development.

The Pathways Fellowship provides aspiring teachers of color who want to make a difference in their local communities with a program that will prepare them to become among the best of New York City teachers.
Fellows select from one of three tracks -- general education, STEM, or computer science -- and receive professional development workshops to sharpen foundational teaching skills, early career support to help navigate the job market, and networking opportunities to connect them with some of New York City’s leading educators. In addition, fellows earn while they learn through a dynamic year-long afterschool practicum, where they put their newfound skills to use. 
To be considered, you must either be a college junior with at least 60 credits, a college senior with at least 90 credits, or a college graduate who completed college no more than three years ago.

A partnership with the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development and LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City, ExpandED Pathways: Computer Science is open to educators from afterschool programs funded by DYCD. The program is designed to grow the supply of effective computer science specialists working in after-school and expanded learning programs. The training entails a 45-hour course at LaGuardia Community College and a paid, part-time job teaching computer science in an after-school setting.

This special initiative is also right for people who are interested in a long-term careers in youth development as well as for those interested in becoming school-day computer science teachers but who do not yet meet the requirements for admission to the Pathways Fellowship teacher preparation venture described above.
