Designing Your Success (DYS) FELLOWSHIP
The New Sector Designing Your Success (DYS) Fellowship is an intensive three-day certification program focused on preparing for the future of work. DYS was created by educators and innovators from Stanford d.school and the Stanford Graduate School of Education. DYS is currently being piloted with Year Up Inc., a job training and wraparound services program for urban young adults. DYS Fellows in this first cohort will use their certifications to train 300 Year Up alumni in Boston, Chicago, New York, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Washington, D.C. in our pilot year. We are working to scale this by a factor of 10 in 2020.
The DYS Fellowship includes the following elements:
- Training – Workforce development partners bring DYS to their organizations via a professional development program that certifies educators as DYS Fellows. Our professional development program holds a strong focus on pedagogy as the key to cultivating a growth mindset and developing skills such as adaptability, resiliency, agency and creative confidence in workforce populations.
- Coaching – Unlike many professional development programs, certified DYS Fellows benefit from continued support from New Sector’s DYS team and networks of peer educators across the U.S.
- Supporting Social Impact – DYS Fellows work full-time with a nonprofit organization that already provides workforce development programing. Fellows gain experience and apply learning from their DYS certification with their employers and learners.
