Our teachers use their numerous skills and experiences from their varied work, leadership, and academic backgrounds to affect change in their classroom and help break the cycle of inequity that prevents students from fulfilling their potential.

WorldTeach Alumni-Apply for a Fellowship with Education Pioneers
Many people want to improve our US education system, but are unfamiliar with the landscape of Public Education and need help finding a position that utilizes their professional background and experience. Education Pioneers recruits, develops, and connects talented professionals from diverse backgrounds, including graduate students, to work for K-12 school districts, charter schools, and other education organizations. Pioneers work on issues related to student data analysis, external relations, operations, human resources, strategy, and more, solving problems from outside of the classroom so students and teachers can succeed inside of the classroom.
The summer track is a 10-week internship where you dive in and make an immediate impact, and the career track is the on-ramp into a long-term opportunity. Fellows on both tracks join regular professional development opportunities where they learn and grow alongside a diverse and equally passionate cohort of Pioneers. TO learn more about EP, please join one of their webinars and check out their application.
