Working with Equal Opportunity Schools
The Equal Opportunity Schools® organization (EOS) is a growth-stage, education-reform not-for-profit that changes lives and narrows the achievement gap by collaborating with superintendents and principals to address an inequity in our schools: under-enrollment in the best academic programs – especially of students who are Latino, African-American, or low-income. EOS identifies these “missing students” – who we have shown can succeed at the highest academic levels within their schools – and works to transition them into the best, college-bound classes. Because our mission is to find all two-thirds of a million “missing students” within the decade, EOS seeks to hire candidates who have the skills to succeed on a rapidly growing, continuously improving, high-impact, mission-driven team.
Equal Opportunity Schools’ Partnership Directors manage a portfolio of about 8-10 high schools, with the responsibility for helping their schools find about 1,000 missing students by fall 2015. The Partnership Director will represent Equal Opportunity Schools, interfacing directly with district leadership, school principals, and staff to provide coaching and consulting services. As of May 30, 2014, we are no longer accepting applications for the partnership director position.
Equal Opportunity Schools’ Analysts help the EOS team develop and communicate the stories of America’s “missing students”. This involves the collection and interpretation of a wide variety of quantitative and qualitative information. The Analyst will use his/her findings to provide guidance to the team, and to help tell the story of EOS in a variety of formats—slides, video, writing, and website. As we are a young organization, the Analyst will have exposure to strategic and leadership conversations, opportunities to shape EOS’s approach, and unmatched opportunities for mentorship and growth with our high-caliber team.
EOS is currently not hiring. Please check back in the spring.
Equal Opportunity Schools places immense value on the efforts of volunteers to support its mission. Equal Opportunity Schools was founded through thousands of hours of volunteerism by more than a dozen individuals, and volunteerism remains an important part of what we do. We offer a wide variety of projects matched to volunteers’ interest. If you are passionate about ensuring that students of all backgrounds get great opportunities for learning in their schools, please contact us: Jobs@EOSchools.org
