Jeff Wetzler is a co-founder of Transcend, a nonprofit organization that fuels innovation in school design in close partnership with visionary school operators around the country.
The essential question animating Jeff’s career -- whether in working with children, educators, or executives -- has always been: how can we create learning experiences that are deeper, more meaningful, and enduring?
Prior to co-founding Transcend, Jeff spent a decade in senior leadership roles at Teach For America. For the majority of that time, Jeff served as EVP of Teacher Preparation, Support, and Development and Chief Learning Officer, where his teams focused on optimizing the training and ongoing support of TFA’s thousands of corps members nationally. Before that, Jeff worked at Monitor Group, an international consulting firm, where he focused on adult and organizational development and created a technology product to extend the impact of learning experiences.
Wetzler currently serves on the boards of Uncommon Schools NYC, New Classrooms Innovation Partners, and the National Academy of Advanced Teacher Education.
Jeff lives in New York with his wife and two kids.
