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 seeks highly motivated individuals who are excited and passionate about joining a program that will prepare them to become one of New York City’s best teachers. Our program is focused on recruiting aspiring educators of color who want to make a difference in their local communities. In our Fellowship, participants have the chance to earn while they learn through a dynamic after school practicum. Alongside the after school practicum, we provide professional development workshops to sharpen their foundational teaching skills, early career support to help them navigate the job market, and networking opportunities that can connect them with some of New York City’s leading educators. In addition, we offer three different tracks—general education, STEM, and Computer Science. These tracks will provide a specific content area for them to become familiar with and use in their after-school practicum.

ExpandED Pathways: Computer Science is an initiative designed to strengthen the pipeline of individuals prepared for and qualified to teach in NYC public schools, and grow the supply of effective computer science (CS) specialists working in after-school and expanded learning programs.

Working in partnership with Hostos Community College, LaGuardia Community College, New York City Department of Education and several community-based organizations, ExpandED Pathways: CS provides coaching and support to aspiring educators to help align their studies (a 45-hour course in CS education) and a paid, part-time job teaching CS in an after-school setting. 

This has a dual benefit of helping build the capacity of the teaching workforce, and providing with the opportunity to learn computer science after school.
