Open Positions:

We deeply value the expertise of lived experience and strongly value and seek to invest in applicants that have shared lived experience with the learners we currently and hope to work with, including folks of color, people from working class and low-income backgrounds, those who are immigrants or children of immigrants to the US, those whose first language isn’t English, trans and queer individuals, and others from communities who have been underinvested in.

Data shows that women and BIPOC candidates more frequently do not apply to a job because they don’t feel that they meet all of the qualifications listed. Our job descriptions are general overviews, not a mandatory comprehensive list. If you feel passionate about our efforts and believe that you have the skills to succeed in any of these roles, we want to hear from you!
