Stand is a non-profit education advocacy organization focused on ensuring all students receive a high quality, relevant education, especially those whose boundless potential is overlooked and under-tapped because of their skin color, zip code, first language, or disability.
Our work in Colorado is currently focused on improving early literacy, engaging parents to be the voice for quality schools, and equitable funding for all schools.
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 Colorado team at a moment of tremendous need and opportunity, you will be responsible for developing and supporting an organized membership base, using a proven and established organizing model. You will be responsible for building strong and engaged teams committed to taking local, district, and state action in support of students; developing the leadership skills of members; and initiating and leading campaigns to advocate for better education outcomes for students. You will have 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 our mission every year.
