Teach for America – New Jersey (“TFA-NJ”)

Posted on August 9, 2016

To support a Director of Alumni & Community Partnerships (“DACP”) to maximize the impact of the local movement for educational equality by connecting alumni to each other, to greater opportunities, and to the broader community. The DACP will work to support their alumni initiative areas of alumni involvement, school leadership and teacher leadership in New Jersey. There are nearly 1100 alumni in New Jersey who are working to close the achievement gap from all sectors. The DACP will lead New Jersey’s efforts to galvanize TFA alumni leaders in education and foster greater partnerships within the communities that they serve, with a special emphasis on Newark. The goal is to ensure that alumni feel better connected to the local Teach for America network, are timely made aware of career opportunities, and are then supported in pursuing them.
