We're Hiring

As a Partnership teacher, you will receive all the benefits of being an LAUSD employee. In addition, Partnership teachers have access to professional development opportunities, coaching and training above and beyond what is traditionally available in district settings. For those seeking to take the next step in leadership without leaving the classroom, our network-wide teacher leader programs are unparalleled in their support of future leaders.

As a Partnership teacher leader I not only have access to additional resources and professional development opportunities, but I have the privilege of collaborating with amazingly passionate and likeminded educators from across the network. When we come together, we form a dynamic educational think tank that never ceases to push my thinking, add skills to my toolbox and improve my classroom practice.

College Success Advisor, AmeriCorps VISTA

The AmeriCorps VISTA program provides the opportunity for corps members to make a tangible difference in the biggest challenges facing our nation, including lack of access to education.  The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools is committed to providing all of our students with the preparation that they need to matriculate to the 4-year college of their choice and be successful upon arrival.  In order to meet that vision, we understand that there must be a K-12 commitment to building a strong college-going culture.  We are seeking corps members to serve as College Success Advisors at Partnership Middle Schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District.  Each advisor will support their assigned school(s) with college and career event planning, college readiness presentations, field trips, family engagement, and other related activities.  Advisors will also help students navigate the transition from elementary to middle school and middle to high school to support them in transitioning to schools that also support this mission.
