“The Pathfinders students we have worked with have been a great support to our program, and have learned a lot along the way! Pathfinders have been particularly valuable supporting our community education programs, teaching New Yorkers both young and old the ins and outs of what technology can offer. These students, who have come to us with technical knowledge, have not only been able to share this knowledge with our members, but have had the opportunity to deepen their own learning in the process of teaching others. The students, as well as the Pathfinders team, have always been great to work with – we look forward to working with the program in future!”

Students support CRC programming at multiple levels, from tech-support, central administrative support, and as assistants to our technology educators.
