The Institute created the Career Development Center to provide career and higher education advising services to those looking to enter or advance within the early childhood field. Originally established in New York City, the Career Development Center model has now expanded across the state, with nine satellite sites. The ten Centers provide a comprehensive set of services, including individually tailored career advising, creation of a career planning map, scholarship and financial aid advising and assistance, and job search and placement assistance. The Centers carry out the work of the Early Childhood Leadership Initiative to provide professional and career development to current and future directors and leaders. The Centers also administer the statewide CUNY/SUNY Early Childhood Workforce Scholarship, to support educators working in early childhood centers and child care homes while they pursue the degrees, certifications, and credentials that they need to advance in their career. The Director of Career Development will lead the work of the NYC Career Development Center and provide strategic direction to the nine Career Centers throughout the state. The Institute’s Director of Career Development will work closely with and supervise Institute Career Advisors, Regional Coordinators, and Leadership Initiative Coordinators. The Director reports to the Senior Director of Career Development and Higher Education.
