Opportunities with Empower Schools

Position: Manager | Preferred Location: Austin, TX; Boston, MA, or Denver, CO

Reporting directly to one of our co-founders and Partners, and working closely with other members of the Empower team, you will work to identify and support opportunities to design and launch innovative solutions that can better meet the needs of students.

More specifically, your work will include (1) supporting our growth in Colorado and other select geographies, and (2) advancing our rural innovation strategy regionally and nationally. Empower is working with a number of state education agencies to provide strategic support as they navigate an historic opportunity to catalyze structural change that endures beyond recovery. Your leadership in driving our growth will create opportunities for more students, especially those least well served by the current system, to access a high quality education. As part of this role, you will receive coaching and mentorship from experienced leaders and entrepreneurs and interact with a wide range of leaders and practitioners in the field.

Position: Director | Location: Indiana (Flexible)

Preferred application deadline: June 3, 2021
Reporting to one of Empower’s Partners, you will be responsible for leading project teams, working closely with state and district leaders to drive sustainable innovation within districts, and support the design, launch, and success of empowered district school systems and Empowerment Zones across Indiana.

Empower has been working in Indiana since 2019. We partnered with the South Bend Community School Corporation and the Indiana State Board of Education to help design and launch the South Bend Empowerment Zone, which is an innovative district partnership charged with transforming five of South Bend Community School Corporation’s schools. In the Spring of 2021, Empower was selected by the Indiana Department of Education to help lead a consortium of Local Education Agencies through a strategic planning process to help maximize the impact of federal COVID relief funding. In this role, you will help to build off of our initial work and support districts to strategically invest these funds to reimagine and rebuild an education system that is less-rigid and more collaborative, student-centered, and capable of meeting students’ individual needs – now and in the future.
