The Syracuse City School District is undergoing a new phase of innovation and transformation with the goal of ensuring that all students graduate high school with the skills needed to be ready for college and career. For Syracuse, all means all - including students who fall behind or have been considered "hard to serve" for a host of reasons. The School Board and Syracuse community have charged Superintendent Jaime Alicea with improving student achievement, and he is seeking a dedicated and diverse team of school leaders and teachers to partner with him in moving the district toward its goals. The Syracuse City School District represents 34 schools and 4 alternative education programs, serving 21,000+ students Pre-K-12 of whom 77% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, 18% are served by the Office of Special Education and 78% are students of color.


Our mission is to support young men of Syracuse in their journey towards becoming men of character by helping them develop their purpose and passion, instilling integrity in their leadership, and providing them with opportunities to build healthy relationships with others. Building Men strongly believes that developing a fellowship of young males striving to become responsible men will increase their motivation, passion, and leadership and help create a positive impact upon the young men's development.

The Building Men vision is that young men in Syracuse will see themselves as part of a larger fellowship of men who:
  • have excellent attendance in school and in after-school programs;
  • graduate from high school and college/career education;
  • participate in community in some level; and
  • have the ability to make a significant impact upon society.


The District seeks certified teachers, highly qualified teaching assistants or degreed individual, who will work directly with students, facilitate group activities, produce in-person and/or virtual lesson plans and instructional delivery, provide focused individual attention and foster strong relationships that positively influence children's lives. Past participants are strongly encouraged to apply. Extensions are being offered to qualified staff for up to 15 hours per week (depending on staffing needs). Programs will run for 90-107 program days, generally Monday through Friday, according to a predetermined afterschool calendar. In-person class sizes are one teacher to up to fifteen students and virtual class sizes can vary. The after school program will be led and facilitated by a designed SCSD Program Lead and supervised by a SCSD Building Administrator.

Building Men training will be provided and services will include: Chalk Talks, Progress Reports, Community Service Projects and Rite of Passage Ceremony. Joe Horan, Coordinator of Building Men services, will provide guided assistance throughout the year. For more information, go to:
