Who We Are

New Visions for Public Schools is the leading non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of public education in New York City.  Today, we support over 700 public schools and thousands of teachers, serving 450,000 students, in their most critical work: deciding what and how to teach, helping keep students on track to graduation, and preparing students for success beyond high school.  New Visions directly manages a network of 10 charter high schools across the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. 

Who You Are

You’re a seasoned career readiness specialist looking to transfer your skills to a mission-driven organization.  You’ve demonstrated success in building career readiness programs and employer partnerships.  You’re passionate, entrepreneurial and motivated by data and results.  You’re a creative problem solver and open to experimentation to accomplish goals.  You know how to build relationships with people of all backgrounds and connect them to a common goal.  You believe in our mission to provide best-in-class education to all students and won’t let anything stand in your way of making that a reality.  

What You’ll Do

You’ll design and facilitate coaching, structures, and processes for career readiness.   You’ll develop systems and support strategies to integrate career readiness with postsecondary planning at our schools.  You’ll engage key partners in the field including employers, workforce development organizations, corporate partners, colleges, and more. You’ll use technology and data to increase efficiency and create dynamic and continuously improving school organizations. All of this work will be to achieve our visions that every New Visions school in our core network will support students and their caregivers to explore college and careers so that students graduate high school with a postsecondary plan that includes best fit education, training or employment and the skills and experience to succeed in that plan.  

Why New Visions?

You’ll have the opportunity to connect directly with students and families to help them achieve their dreams.  You’ll be challenged constantly, but will always have an amazing team to back you up and push you to succeed.  You get to work with thought leaders and innovators in the education section.  And you’ll be contributing to changing the landscape of public education in NYC.  Plus, we have great medical benefits and fun work perks!
