Teach for America is seeking a Senior Vice President, Regional Sales Representative.
The charge of the Regional Operations team is to foster the individual and collective leadership of Executive Directors and Board Chairs, alongside senior leaders across the organization, in pursuit of maximizing Teach For America’s contributions in communities. Specifically, in addition to supporting Executive Directors through situational leadership, we also:
- partner with boards to attract, hire, and retain EDs;
- foster a community of love and excellence among our EDs, by operationalizing our core values alongside regional boards and the national organization;
- facilitate rigorous learning and collaboration among regional leadership, boards, and the national organization; and build the conditions and infrastructure for regions to live into our commitments of autonomy, accountability, and affiliation.
There are four Regional Field Executives, who own portfolios of regions, collectively responsible for 53 urban and rural communities (that support new cohorts of corps members and a growing base of alumni who are committed to educational justice for every child). Our team is the link between our local regions and the national organization. Regional Field Executives help Executive Directors, their staff, and their regional boards work with districts, local leaders, and alumni to set the vision and direction for Teach For America in their community. We work to create the conditions and peer to peer learning that enables the sharing of best practices among regions, between our regional and national teams, and with external partners.
