one Goal job opportunity
OneGoal is a national organization of students, teachers, and education leaders that work together to ensure every student can achieve their greatest postsecondary aspirations and to create a more equitable future. OneGoal starts as a credit bearing class in students’ junior and senior years of high school and continues during the critical transitional period through their first year of college or other postsecondary path. OneGoal Chicago is currently seeking teachers to serve as Program Directors. We are looking for educators who are highly effective and who see themselves as change-agents, because they are the best equipped to facilitate OneGoal and ensure their cohorts of Fellows are prepared to succeed in college and beyond. A great Program Director is someone who excels in all four of these areas: coaching and motivating students, holding students and themselves accountable, building strong relationships and community, and creating and managing a rigorous learning environment. If you or someone you know are interested, please visit the OneGoal website to learn more and to make a nomination!
