Job Description:

Location: Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD or Metro New York City Area; with a strong preference in Metro New York City. Comfort traveling 1-2x/month.

Position is available: August 2019


Every student deserves opportunities in life, and every educator committed to providing those opportunities, deserves support. Those beliefs drive us to work alongside schools to support great teaching so that we can work towards guaranteeing that all students are receiving high quality instruction. We partner with over 900 schools - both district and charter - in underserved communities around the country, thus impacting more than 330,000 students. Third-party evaluations confirm that when schools have the right basic conditions in place and partner with ANet, they achieve 6-8 months of additional learning over a two-year period compared to schools not partnering with ANet.

At ANet we are committed to living out our core values, both across our organization and with our partner schools. We acknowledge that systemic inequities impact student access to opportunities and that in order to ensure educational equity for all students, we must center on the experiences of those from marginalized communities to guide our work. We work to deepen our understanding of how race, class, power and privilege influence the education system as well as influence our own perspectives. To do so, we provide ongoing learning opportunities through org-wide professional development, affinity groups, working groups, and resource sharing.

Individuals who join ANet have the opportunity to be part of a dynamic, values driven, and team-oriented organization that is committed to having impact in schools by investing in each other and learning together. We were named as The NonProfit Times “Best Nonprofits to Work For” and work tirelessly to foster a working environment where the unique perspectives, backgrounds, and identities of our staff members are valued.


The Regional Associate will play a critical role in driving internal communications, projects, and strategies to further team and organizational goals. The Associate is a key member of the team with multiple responsibilities in supporting the senior leadership in this region as well as the Directors of School Support by managing various internal and external events and supporting the team's use of data in decision-making, including the region's partnership engagement and growth strategy. They will lead logistical operations for the team such as calendar management, strategic communications, supply procurement, and budget and expense tracking. This is an ideal opportunity for a quick learner who thrives at interacting with internal and external stakeholders and who is motivated by working behind the scenes in support of educational equity.
