Working with Equal Opportunity Schools
The Equal Opportunity Schools® organization (EOS) is an early-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 Analysts provide direct support to our partner schools and districts through collaborative work with their leaders and the detailed study of existing and new student-specific data. The findings and recommendations developed by EOS Analysts enable the adoption and implementation of highly effective strategies for reaching missing students.
Equal Opportunity Schools Partnership Directors manage relationships and partnership activities with equity-minded school and district leadership teams to achieve ambitious outcomes for students. Partnership Directors use consultative and collaborative problem solving, and research and analysis to enable educational leaders to work toward specific, improved results for students.
We are not currently hiring. Please check back in Spring 2014.
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
Our internship program is intensive, and requires the application of creativity, analytical and critical thinking skills. It is not a secretarial position disguised as an internship. Interns will manage projects with both independence and an appetite for seeking out answers and advice from others. The internship takes place in Seattle. Interns working from other locations may be considered, although priority will be given to applicants who will work in Seattle. To learn more, please submit a cover letter and resume to Jobs@EOSchools.org
