Housing Career Pathways is a skills training program that prepares trainees for well-paying office-based career-launching pathways in the NYC affordable housing industry. 

The Housing Career Pathways training program spans seven weeks, comprising four weeks of in-person classroom training in industry-specific topics, professional and digital literacy skills, as well as soft skills development followed by an 80-hour paid internship experience with affordable housing companies across NYC. 

After the program, program staff provide graduates with 2+ years of dedicated support, ensuring they obtain high-quality jobs and grow and advance in the sector long-term. 


Our free 7-week training is industry-informed and developed alongside hiring managers and program graduates working in the field. Our curriculum emphasizes professional communication and digital skills in addition to industry-specific topics. Classroom training is fully in-person and takes place at one of our training facilities in Brooklyn. Internship locations are affordable housing property management companies across NYC. 

The Housing Career Pathways training program provides an introduction to affordable housing in New York City and covers industry-specific topics like Tenant Marketing & Compliance, the HPD Marketing Handbook, and Fair Housing to prepare graduates for work as Housing Lottery Associates, Compliance Coordinators, and Rental Coordinators in the affordable housing industry.
