Working With Us
The Student Advocacy Center seeks to build workplaces, schools and communities that cultivate a deep sense of belonging for all, particularly for people of color, gender-nonconforming people, people with different abilities, returning citizens, undocumented citizens and others who experience hate and rejection in our world.
The Student Advocacy Center believes our common humanity unites us. We recognize how deeply we are all hurt by racism, homophobia, xenophobia, ableism and other violent practices. Those of us with multiple levels of privilege and those most impacted by oppression must be equally invested in creating and facilitating a community that is equitable, human-centered and just. Our liberation is bound together.
We celebrate interconnection and diversity. We have a deep commitment to cultural humility and anti-oppressive action. We expressly prohibit discrimination in regard to race, color, national origin, age, familial status, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, religion, veteran status, height, weight, associational preference or genetic information.
Our team is social justice–minded, passionate, committed, and outreach-focused. We think outside the box. We love our students and families and are committed to listening before talking. We don’t speak “for” our students or parents. We stand with them, beside them. We know they are the experts in their lives. We want them to have more power, not less.
If you are passionate about education justice and are aligned with our values and approach, please consider applying.
