Stand is a non-profit education advocacy group that believes ALL children deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in life. Stand works to accomplish this mission through:
We focus primarily on increasing early literacy and high school success. Additional priorities include, improving school quality and ensuring adequate funding spent wisely.
Your role stands at the intersection of organizing and the fight to change the odds for low-income children and families. As a key member of Stand’s leadership at a moment of tremendous need and opportunity, you build on the progress to date to create a national organizing effort capable of impacting local, state, and federal policy decisions and elections. As someone motivated by results and impact, you get the opportunity to work with colleagues who not only care deeply about justice and equity, but who are bold and strategic and take responsibility for achieving substantial progress toward greater justice and equity every year, everywhere we work. Through your innovative and strategic leadership of a growing organizing program and new membership benefits model, you take Stand’s impact to new heights while empowering and developing the leadership of thousands of parents from under tapped communities in the process.
