MANAGER, EDUCATIONAL CONTENT JOB DESCRIPTION

Based in: New York, NY or remote


ABOUT CEE

The Council for Economic Education’s (CEE’s) mission is to equip K-12 students with the tools and knowledge of personal finance and economics so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities.


We carry out our mission by providing resources and training to K-12 educators and have done so for over 70 years. Nearly two-thirds of the teachers we reach in-person are in low to moderate income schools. All resources and programs are developed by educators and delivered by our nearly 200 affiliates across the country in every state. We reach over 50,000 teachers a year through in-person professional development and those teachers, in turn, reach approximately 5 million students throughout the country. Our growing virtual educator programs will reach over 10,000 educators this year. EconEdLink, our free online educator gateway for economic and personal finance lessons and resources for educators, attracts more than 800,000 unique visitors per year. Our student facing programs, Invest in Girls, the National Personal Finance Challenge and the National Economics Challenge together reached over 30,000 high school students in 2019 (we went virtual in 2020, with great programs but fewer students). We also advocate for more and better education in personal finance and economics, primarily through the biennial Survey of the States.
