Media Organization: Teach For America - New York
In the most populous and influential city in our country, where millions flock to pursue their dreams, just 1 in 10 students from low-income communities graduates from college. Transformational leadership in New York has led to significant progress – fourth graders in our city are performing a full grade-level higher than a decade ago, and the high school graduation rate has increased for ten consecutive years. Teach For America is a significant source of the leadership working to make these changes. Approximately 600 corps members and 4,700 alumni call the city home, as well as the many staff members who work from our national headquarters in Manhattan.
Teach For America-New York (TFA-NY) seeks a Communications & Marketing Director to execute a regional communications strategy that supports our programmatic and fundraising goals. This person will lead our public relations, marketing, and constituent communications strategy for the New York region, developing messages designed to share our regional stories with a wide range of audiences including but not limited to donors, corps members, alumni, school partners, and community partners. The Director will actively seek out opportunities to share these stories with a wider audience and respond proactively to media requests. This person is a savvy communicator with experience leveraging social media to build and develop a strong brand. S/he will thrive in a fun, collaborative and entrepreneurial work environment, surrounded by a passionate team.
