Teach for America – New York (“TFA-NY”)

Posted on August 9, 2016

For support of the Director of School-Based Alumni who will oversee their efforts to leverage their alumni and school-centered staff structure to support their alumni educators and maximize the impact of their network in New York City. The New York alumni base totals over 4,700, 2,800 of whom are still working in schools as teachers and school leaders. The size of this group is both the source of enormous potential to positively impact education equity and the barrier to consistent, meaningful engagement. They have restructured their program so that coaches working with new teachers are also responsible for engaging the alumni educators in their school portfolio. TFA-NY is focusing more talent on retaining alumni as teachers and preparing them for leadership in their classrooms, schools and beyond so they can have a long-term impact on students in NYC’s highest-need schools.
