Code Nation

Posted on July 20, 2023

For a new Program Manager position to support the expansion of their Teacher Led Programs (“TLP”) through which classroom teachers at under-resourced NYC schools are trained to deliver Code Nation’s web development curriculum, enabling the teachers to better teach the fundamentals of coding, a cutting-edge and high-paying computer skill. In the TLP model, Code Nation provides ongoing, in-person training to classroom teachers who teach their Intro to Web Development curriculum. They provide classroom teachers with a full curriculum including: lesson plans, guided notes, activities, and homework; weekly check-ins with a Code Nation Program Manager; biweekly classroom observations; weekly volunteer support; and field trips to tech companies. A cohort of 6-8 volunteers commit to coming in-person to classrooms on a bimonthly basis. The volunteer experts alternate so that one of them can physically be within the classroom every week to provide feedback and guidance on technical projects, and to better form personal relationships and helpful linkages to members of the tech industry. Code Nation equips students in under-resourced schools with the fundamental coding skills and professional experiences that can together better create interest and access to fine careers in the technology sector.
