Opportunities in Education:

SAN FRANCISCO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT (SFUSD)

The San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) has an urgent need to bring our schools and classrooms to the 21st century and integrate technology into teaching and learning. Currently only 7% of SFUSD students have access to technology during the school day, and that technology is often decrepit and irrelevant. The Fuse Corps Fellow will drive the awareness building an engagement campaign to raise the political, financial and social capital necessary to realize this bold vision and get San Francisco schools to the 21st century. The vision provides a platform for the “call to action” to tech, businesses, and all SF residents. SFUSD needs a strategic, ad savvy leader to get the message out and shift the plan into action.

                                                                        

SAN FRANCISCO PUBLIC LIBRARY:

Create an online program that helps 19-25 year olds attain their high school diploma. Identify a process for promoting the program, selecting candidates, creating measures and incentives to ensure students remain on track with curriculum, developing re-entry opportunities, seeking connections with the Literacy and Learning Center resources, and identifying opportunities for the Library to create follow-up support to graduates using existing and potentially expanded resources of SFPL’s Jobs & Careers Center. The fellow would work closely with Mayor’s education liaison and the SFUSD to partner and promote further educational resources for San Franciscans.
