Join us and help make extraordinary change for underserved students.
Want to make your mark in education? Join EP.
At EP, a national nonprofit, we bridge the talent gap in K-12 public education. We do this by connecting hundreds of leaders each year to new roles in education, and to new knowledge and connections through our Fellowship and learning programs.
We scout the nation to find talented graduate students and professionals with a variety of backgrounds and experiences.
EP connects Pioneers with Partner organizations in K-12 education, including school districts, charter schools, and more.
EP provides our Pioneers and Partners with connections to leadership development and a powerful network.
The EP Fellowship connects Fellows with roles across the education sector in data and analysis, strategy and planning, operations, program and project management, and more so that they can use their skills and career to make a lasting impact toward transforming education. From our nation’s largest school districts and charter schools to nonprofits and government agencies, we've supported over 750 education organizations since our start in 2003. Learn more about what we do.
Why choose EP? Easy.
Working at EP and in support of our Fellows and education organizations, you have the opportunity to reach and serve millions of students. No other nonprofit supports talent outside the classroom at the scale that we do.
Bottom line: This work is about justice, equity, passion, and transformation. We’re betting on great people to make the change that underserved students need and deserve.
Commitment to Diversity
At EP, we value diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe that it is critical for leaders in urban education to reflect the communities they serve. We actively recruit and encourage people of color, individuals from the LGBTQIAA+ community, and others who identify as a part of historically marginalized communities to join our team. We support equal opportunity for all people and we strongly encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds to apply for positions in our organization and for our programs.
It’s going to take all of us, working together, to reimagine public education for underserved students—who are too often students from low-income families and students of color.
#WeAreEP: Our Team
At EP, our culture is built on seven core values. Among them, we believe that we must have the optimism, guts, and will to make dramatic change for underserved kids. To find meaningful solutions, our work must be guided by prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Our team is made up of former teachers and school leaders, lawyers and CPAs, program managers, consultants, executive directors, financial analysts, and more. (And not to brag, but we’re the kind of people you’d want to hang out with off the clock too.)
We come from various personal and professional backgrounds, and we know that diversity makes our team strong.
What unites us all is one fundamental belief: we can and must achieve extraordinary results for underserved students.

What it's like to work at EP
At EP, we work hard and play hard.
Across the country, we work in both EP offices and virtual home offices.
Being virtual allows our team to have flexibility at work, which is a good thing when you’re, well, human. We want you to be able to do your best work, however that looks. We work with team members to support work/life balance, while also pushing work forward and getting things done.
To support our virtual culture, we use Skype for Business, Google Docs, Salesforce Chatter, and our intranet (we call him Walter; we’ll introduce you) to help us collaborate.
Through Town Hall meetings, virtual coffee chats, affinity groups, planned and impromptu lunches and after-work happy hours, we connect with each other across time zones.
Once a year, we all get together for an all-staff retreat where we learn, play, grow, and forge connections in-person. There, you’ll find us Zumba-ing to Beyonce at sunrise or running miles with our team marathoners before we dive into professional development, workshops, and celebrating our successes.
