Who We Are
We believe in the power of a safe and excellent public education. Our team is committed to increasing the number of high-quality seats within our neighborhood public schools. As a nonprofit organization, we offer resources to grow and launch great public schools, invest in organizations and leaders that will provide students with outstanding educational opportunities, and collaboratively help prove that every child can achieve, regardless of ethnicity, zip code or family income.
We are committed to building a culturally diverse team. We strongly encourage applications from candidates with a diverse background or who can bring a new perspective to our work. It is important to us that we continue to be a great place to work for all of our team members. Candidates should include details of their personal history and how that history prepares them to join a growing, vision-centric team committed to doing great things for kids in Nevada.
Help build partnerships with more families and community members.
The Community Impact Field Coordinators work with the Manager of Community Impact Initiatives to build and sustain relationships with parents, grandparents, guardians, and community partners to talk to about how schools are performing and how to get engaged. Examples include:
- Canvassing and door knocking in targeted neighborhoods
- Networking with community partners at local community events
- Attending school-parent meetings to learn from parents about their experience and share information
Be a resource for families who want to learn more.
Field Coordinators collaborate with the Manager of Community Impact and Manager of Communications to build and maintain a solid understanding of school performance and identify ways to find, share, and support others in learning more about school and student performance.
Make connections for families and community members who want to take action to support improving public education.
Field coordinators will work to understand the avenues available for families to share their story, take action, and make an impact on decisions related to their own student’s school or schools in general. This includes: working knowledge of the local school board, the state board, and school organizational teams. In addition, the FC will need the ability to partner with families and community members to plan and problem solve around their approach for speaking out and taking action.
