Program Initiatives

Part of the Young Men's Initiative, NYC Men Teach is a partnership between the Office of the Mayor, the New York City Department of Education, and CUNY that aims to improve the diversity of the New York teaching workforce by adding 1,000 male teachers of color into the teacher pipeline by 2018. NYC Men Teach at Kingsborough Community College builds upon our commitment to educate and support students in urban schools, and highlights the importance of deep clinical, culturally relevant, and restorative practice.

We are pleased to be able to offer CTLE hours for all of our Education Program courses. Each 3-credit course is equivalent to 45 earned CTLE hours, in addition to the college credits earned toward an Associate Degree in Education Studies. We offer evening courses for paraprofessionals currently working in Brooklyn schools.
