About Pathfinder

What is Pathfinder?

Pathfinder brings together in one place all the job and professional development opportunities available to the dedicated people who work in afterschool, expanded learning time and youth programs in New York State. Using this site, staff can easily find the right trainings for themselves—whether on-line or in-person, informal or credit-bearing, short workshops or full conferences. They can get ahead in their careers by searching for job opportunities and creating and posting their own resumes and cover letters. Employers can use Pathfinder to select trainings for their staff and find top talent for their organization. The site is also a resource for training providers, who can recruit participants and keep up on what’s happening in the field.

Who’s behind this project?

Pathfinder is a project of The New York Afterschool Network made possible by generous funding from The Wallace Foundation, the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development and the Booth Ferris Foundation. NYSAN is a public-private partnership of statewide, regional, and local groups dedicated to promoting young people's safety, learning, and healthy development outside the traditional classroom.  NYSAN's activities are directed toward building the capacity and commitment of communities to increase the quality and availability of afterschool and other expanded learning programs and youth services across New York State.
