Community Outreach Manager – Full OR Part-Time

Red Bridge Description Red Bridge is an independent K-8 school opening in San Francisco in September 2020. Red Bridge was founded as a demonstration school for a new model of education designed to foster a sense of agency in every student as the foundation for academic and life success. Student ownership is built into every system and structure of the school, so that students gradually take on more responsibility for their learning. This puts every student on the path to becoming a lifelong learner – so that no matter what the future looks like, they have the capacity to adapt and flourish.Teachers at Red Bridge are models of lifelong learning: collaborating to design meaningful learning experiences for students, closely observing children’s development and needs, and creating and reflecting on new routines and systems. Red Bridge currently has two teaching roles: Learning Guide and Subject Expert. Learning Guides are the in-school advocate for each child and meet with each student weekly one-on-one to discuss their development as learners and community members. Subject Experts are primarily responsible for leading small-group instruction in their area of expertise, and for providing individual support in the subject as needed. Red Bridge has three core subjects: Communication, Computation and Observation.Position Overview As the Community Outreach Manager, you are responsible for spreading a love of the Red Bridge mission and model with the world.
