Learning Facilitator-Diversity, Equity, Inclusiveness
We are hiring individual Learning Facilitators (LFs). Facilitators will contribute by leading a robust set of learning experiences--most of which take place in larger groups (full school site or an entire content area). Facilitators should be well versed in a wide range of areas, but we’re looking for people with unique passion, experience and background in Diversity, Equity and Inclusiveness work. People in the LF DEI role will be responsible for working with a wide array of learners--with various exposure to DEI pedagogy. Many teachers may enter the summer with little background knowledge around theory, while other teachers may enter with an immense amount of background, experience or past work. Your job will be to ensure all teachers work alongside one another in order to grow their understanding of their own identity and place in this work, while cultivating and supporting a broad coalition of very diverse teachers. You’ll work with other LFs to execute the majority of learning spaces on site, as well as provide feedback on corps member lesson plans and tracking systems. Facilitators must be prepared to build culture in large group spaces, as well in smaller group interactions. Facilitators will engage in best practices for strong adult learning--building skill in the best ways to motivate learning and ensure skill growth. Strong DEI practitioners with knowledge of and experience teaching through the lens of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (CRP), the facilitators are able to drive exceptional learning experiences for corps members while supporting other summer staff to integrate DEI learning & pedagogical training. The DEI facilitator role will be two-fold: 1) Leading sessions that will challenge CMs in making meaning of their experience by exploring race, class and privilege both within their own identity and the identity of their students. Supporting CMs to lead from both who they are/want to be as leaders and a deep sense of what their students most need given who they’ve learned their students are and the historical broader context that impacts their students’ opportunities daily; and 2) working with the school-based staff assigned to their building to establish a strong vision and culture in the school over the summer that reflects the community and the aspirations of the students in the building.
