About the organization

The Alliance for Decision Education is an educational nonprofit dedicated to the belief that better decisions lead to better lives and a better society. Our mission is to improve lives by empowering students with the essential skills to make better decisions.

The Alliance for Decision Education is working to build the field of Decision Education and create a national movement to ensure that Decision Education is part of every middle and high school student’s learning experience. We believe this will make a positive difference in the lives of students and also in society as a whole for generations to come.

Reporting to the Director of Education, the Education Community Manager (ECM) will grow, develop, and inspire a community of education stakeholders committed to the hard and exciting work of developing Decision Education knowledge, skills, and dispositions in all students. How best to do this is the essential problem the Alliance aims to build an educator community to solve. We expect these education stakeholders to include teachers, education leaders (including superintendents, assistant superintendents, and principals), and instructional coaches, as well as educators who work with other types of education-focused organizations other than schools (e.g. libraries, museums, and out-of-school-time programs).

- At least 3-4 years of experience with building and managing a community of education stakeholders
- Understanding of key community metrics and demonstrated success growing these metrics
- A master’s-level degree is expected, but other paths to an equivalent level of knowledge and experience will be given equal consideration

- Sincere commitment to building relationships and working collaboratively with stakeholders, staff, and vendors
