The Early Childhood Career Pathways Program provides 3 primary career pathways for Onondaga County Residents.
Entrepreneurship: Clients receive $1,355 in start-up funds to start a Home Family Daycare (HFD), access CPR and Health/Safety Trainings, and gain items needed to pass home inspections. Clients also receive technical assistance, marketing materials, and mentoring.
Education: Clients receive assistance obtaining their 120-hour Children Development Associate Credential (CDA) or their Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education.
Employment: Clients receive assistance with resume building and job placement in Head Start and other Early Childhood/Childcare Centers.
Career pathways create a sequence of stackable, portable credentials that reflect the sophisticated science of working with young children, combined with the supports educators need to advance their individual career progression on that pathway.
Career pathways operate on two levels: a systems approach for the workforce at large and an individual approach for each professional seeking advancement.
