About Springboard

Picture a child’s time as an orange. Their classroom experience is a wedge from which the education field is fixated on squeezing more juice. Springboard helps schools juice the rest of the orange, dramatically improving outcomes by harnessing the untapped potential in family engagement.

Low-income parents—often perceived as liabilities rather than as assets—have been left out of the teaching process. With limited access to learning time, their children make slow academic progress during the school year, and they experience chronic regressions over the summer.

Springboard Collaborative closes the literacy gap by closing the gap between home and school. We coach teachers and family members to help children cultivate reading habits through in-person programs and technology. Springboard envisions a world in which all children have the literacy skills to access life opportunities.

Since launching 6 years ago, Springboard has grown its reach from 40 to nearly 10,000 families across 10 cities. Our summer and afterschool programs consistently deliver best-in-class results, showcased in these interactive infographics. Weekly parent training workshops average 90%+ attendance and were featured in the New York Times, PBS, and Forbes. We are out ahead of the field proving a simple but powerful truth: parents’ love for their children is the single greatest and most underutilized natural resource in education.

 

About the opportunity

Springboard Collaborative invites talented and passionate candidates to apply for the position of West Coast Partnership Development Director. The Partnership Development Director will bolster regional sales by renewing existing school partnerships and forging new ones.
