Education Program Manager - Career & Technical Education, Healthcare
Bloomberg Philanthropies works to create catalytic change across five areas of focus: arts and culture, education, the environment, government innovation, and public health. Our mission is to ensure better, longer lives for the greatest number of people. Our approach is rooted in Mike Bloomberg's unique experience and success across the fields of business, government, and philanthropy.
Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Education Program launched its career and technical education (CTE) work in 2016 to help create strong middle-class career opportunities by providing high school students with essential skills, job training and access to continued education. The focus has been on programs within high schools that provide training, credentials, certifications, and work-based learning (apprenticeships and internships) to help young people obtain employment in high-growth industries.
Recently Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a $250 million initiative to create new high schools around the nation that will graduate students directly into high-demand healthcare jobs with family-sustaining wages. The initiative pairs public education systems and hospitals in 10 communities including the urban locations Boston, MA; Charlotte, NC; Dallas, TX; Durham, NC; Houston, TX; Nashville, TN; New York, NY; and Philadelphia, PA; and the rural areas Demopolis, AL and Northeast TN. These schools will offer students robust academic programming, specialized healthcare classes, work-based learning at the partner health system and the opportunity to earn industry-valued credentials and certifications. Immediately upon graduation, students can enter healthcare jobs within the partner healthcare system or choose to advance their healthcare career through post-secondary education.
