Job Title: Guide
Reports To: Empower Generations Program Coordinator
At Empower Generations, we have built a model based on what we believe to be the best of all that is out there. We believe that all children are entitled to an excellent education, regardless of life circumstance. We believe passionately in project-based learning not because it's a fad but because it goes to the heart of how kids learn. We've incorporated technology not as a spiffy add-on but as an organic part of the learning process in the 21st century. We value and encourage leadership not just as a part of a career track but by instilling in each learner the confidence and character that inspire others. Finally, we value the social and emotional development of our learners. We believe there is an implicit, as well as an explicit, curriculum to teach. Our goal is nothing short empowering multiple generations at one time.
Empower Generations is a tuition-free, public, and independent-study charter school that gives priority admission to pregnant and parenting teens. Statistics suggest that over 50% of pregnant or parenting teens dropout of high school for many reasons, including lack of transportation, childcare, and disengagement/isolation. Empower Generations works to increase learner engagement through passion-based and flexible learning, allows babies and toddlers to attend school with their parent(s), and works with community partners to provide wrap-around services to remove barriers to education.
Reporting to the Empower Generations Program Coordinator, the Guide will plan, organize and implement an appropriate instructional program in a learning environment that guides and encourages learners to develop and fulfill their academic potential through learner-driven project-based learning and other independent-study modalities. While learners are in the driver's seat of their own education, Guides work collaboratively with learners and families to design a personalized learning program. We seek individuals who are relational and care deeply about meeting the needs of young parents through a strong academic program. As a startup organization, we seek individuals who enjoy building something from the ground up and who are comfortable with the uncertainty that typically accompanies the creative process.
