Assistant Senior Division Director, Western Division

AVID Center - Denver, Colorado - Full time

What we are looking for:

The ideal candidate is a successful, innovative, and passionate leader who is up to the task of overseeing the day-to-day work of the staff—who engage and support district and school leaders as they implement AVID—across 13 Western states and British Columbia. We are looking for an educational leader who is equally at home developing and executing strategic initiatives, analyzing data, sharing educational trends, engaging stakeholders, navigating different organizations, creating buy-in, and showing how AVID integrates with district initiatives. We seek a strong advocate for public education—a leader who can coach, drive, inspire, and hold others accountable.

What you will do:

You will lead and develop a high-octane team of state directors, program managers, coordinators, and administrative assistants. You will oversee the day-to-day work of the team, which will include: developing and executing strategic initiatives, forging partnerships, deploying program managers to strengthen AVID implementation, deepening AVID’s work, engaging key stakeholders and diverse audiences (district leaders, funders, legislators, etc.), planning large trainings, networking, collaborating cross-functionally with stakeholders across the organization, and developing staff.

What you will enjoy:

AVID is a game changer. Our staff is drawn to AVID because of our mission and our scale. You will enjoy impacting hundreds of districts, 1,500 schools, and tens of thousands of educators in the Western Division. Where else can you have that kind of impact? Schools tell us that they rely on us because our professional learning is in a league of its own, that we rekindle the spark in teachers, and that our model is effective. The work is hard, but the impact is profound. You will work with smart, determined, and diverse people, who share your passion for closing the opportunity, expectation, and achievement gaps. You will get to work from the comfort of home, while being a major contributor to a fast-growing and thriving national education nonprofit.
