Education in Canada is a success story. Study after study shows that our public schools are among the best in the world. But high overall quality masks deep inequality. Only 48 percent of First Nations youth living on reserve have a high school diploma. In the North, those numbers are even lower. And, too often, teachers arrive in northern First Nations without the preparation and support they need to succeed—and stay—in the classroom. The twin challenges of teacher supply and turnover compound historical injustice and systemic inequities to produce a statistical education gap between First Nations and non-First Nations communities.
Teach For Canada is a non-profit organization that works with northern First Nations to recruit, prepare, and support committed teachers who will increase student outcomes in the North. This model has been defined by First Nations community partners, our Circle of Advisors, our Board of Directors, and experienced northern educators.
Teach For Canada has a supportive work culture and offers a variety of benefits to its team members including a comprehensive health benefits package, 3-weeks of annual vacation, access to physical and mental wellness supports, flexible hours, and professional development opportunities.
On our team we are fortunate to have a committed, experienced, talented, and humble group of leaders. Together, this team works hard to create meaningful impact. If you’re looking for a multi-faceted, energizing, and rewarding work environment, then we want to hear from you!
The Vice President of Programs will report directly to the Executive Director and will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for all program areas. You will have three direct reports: Director of Teacher Recruitment, Director of Teacher Development, and Director of Community Engagement and Indigenous Relations. Specific responsibilities include:
External relationships and partnerships
