Posted 30+ Days Ago Full time REQ-202101-269 About Us There are more than 16 million children growing up in poverty in the U.S., and less than 10 percent of them will graduate from college. These statistics are not a reflection of our children's potential; we know that children growing up in poverty can and do achieve at the highest levels. Rather, these statistics reflect the systemic lack of access and opportunity for children in low-income communities. By 2030, twice as many children in communities where we work will reach key educational milestones indicating they are on a path to economic mobility and a future filled with possibility. Teach For America's (TFA) mission is to find, develop, and support a diverse network of leaders committed to expanding opportunity for children from classrooms, schools, and every sector and field that shapes the broader systems in which schools operate. We are seeking individuals who align with our mission, core values and commitment to Diversity Equity & Inclusiveness and are ready to join us in this global movement. WE ARE DEEPLY COMMITTED TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSIVENESS In all we do, we act on the following beliefs: Diversity is crucial for successful change efforts and is one of Teach For America's greatest strengths.-- The full potential of our diverse network will be reached only when we are an inclusive community. The predictability of success or failure for our students or individuals in our organization should not correlate with any social, cultural or other identity-based factors. Teach For America encourages individuals of all ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds to apply for this position. We are committed to maximizing the diversity of our organization, as we want to engage all those who can contribute to this effort.
