Are you concerned about the educational future of the kids in our most vulnerable communities?
Are you a student, parent, or passionate individual looking for a job that allows you to get paid to do meaningful, social justice work?
Join our team at Innovate Public Schools in fighting for quality education in the Bay Area!
The crisis in public education in the Bay Area is a growing problem.
Here in San Francisco, one of the wealthiest cities in the country and the world, less than 50% of African American and Latino students are proficient in the core subjects of English and Math. These outcomes continue to leave generations of students far behind and access to future wealth and economic opportunities out of reach.
Innovate Public Schools is working to be a part of the solution by collaborating with families to develop a new, high quality, free public school focused on meeting the needs of the community. We are hiring passionate individuals who are committed to being a part of a movement to change the outcomes for today’s youth.
Join a team that is driven by the collective mission of championing quality education for all!
