For a Program Manager to support further expansion of ScriptEd’s Careers in Technology program model to serve 38 schools in NYC and provide 14 Advanced Classes, significantly expanding their advanced class offerings while deepening services provided in the classroom. They equip students in under-resourced schools with the fundamental coding skills and professional experiences that together create access to careers in technology. ScriptEd brings its tuition-free program directly to schools, where classes are taught by software developers on a volunteer basis. Selected students then apply their new coding skills in paid summer internships where they work with role models in the field as well, gaining the experience and confidence necessary to pursue a career in technology. The Program Manager will work with 6 schools and be responsible for a cohort of 80 to 100 students, liaising with the schools, supporting volunteers in lesson instruction and pedagogy, and ensuring program quality.
