Design Educators are hired and paid on a per program basis. Programs typically run weekly for 6–10 weeks.

Design Educators accepted for employment must attend an orientation session at the Center for Architecture and be fingerprinted by the Department of Education before taking on a program in a New York City public school. CFA will reimburse the fingerprinting fee.

Design Educators are paid on a per program basis as independent contractors at a rate of $135/90-minute classroom session with students. This is inclusive of prep time needed for each session. 1-hour planning meetings with participating teachers are paid at the rate of $50/hour. Mandatory CFA training sessions are paid at $25/hour.
