Who We Are

Empower Schools envisions a country where every student – especially those in underserved communities – has the opportunity to succeed in school and life. As a national non-profit, we catalyze innovative solutions by partnering with educators and communities to reimagine local education systems towards more equitable life outcomes for all students. To date, we have supported the design and launch of fourteen empowering partnerships across five states, serving more than 28,000 students attending 60 schools. We focus on three key areas:

  • Empowerment Zones- We work with communities to design and launch sustainable local partnerships that enable transformative district schools. Empowerment Zone educators have the flexibility to make decisions that are right for their students, community, and staff.
  • Rural Collaboratives- We work with rural communities to forge new partnerships and develop new ways to share resources so that students in rural areas have access to a great education and are equipped for college and career success.
  • Early College and Career Pathways- We work with communities to create opportunities that lead to postsecondary success for all students. We foster innovative, sustainable, and scalable structures that bridge high school to college and career so students can get the head start and success they need even before they graduate high school.

Position Summary

There are now more than 1,000 Early College High Schools (ECs) across the nation. While EC is a well-proven innovation, it requires some unique structures, governance, and funding to be effective. Building on our experience designing and launching an Early College Alliance (ECA) in Massachusetts, Empower Schools is actively working to build the ecosystem and conditions for a thriving EC sector within our existing geographies and beyond. As Empower School’s first Senior Manager, Early College, you will co-lead these efforts by managing an array of important initiatives, strategy, and relationships.

This is a full-time remote position, with a preference for candidates in the Northeast, allowing easy and frequent travel across New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Boston.
