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 helping elect and protect education champions (at the state and local level) and the fight to change the odds for low-income children and families. As a key member of Stand’s national leadership team, you work closely with the leaders of Stand’s 10 state-based affiliates to help champion their electoral campaign work as well as provide assistance, as needed, to support ballot initiatives. You also collaborate with other national team service providers (marketing/communications and family engagement and organizing) to offer best in class support of Stand’s affiliates. As someone who is motivated by results and impact, you can work with colleagues who not only care deeply about justice and equity of opportunity but recognize that passion is not enough – the work we do must change lives. Through your innovative and strategic leadership, and close coordination with key internal and external partners, you will help take Stand’s impact to new heights by helping to recruit, develop, and support candidates who are education champions and promote ballot initiatives and referendums that put children’s needs first.
