One of the most important areas that non-profits do work in is education. I have no doubt that education can be the solution to many of society’s biggest problems; however, improving educational outcomes for any group of people is never easy. There are organizations working on nearly every facet of education, so one would hope that we’ll eventually start seeing some significant gains. The Institute for Educational Leadership is a Washington, DC based non-profit that brings “together leaders across the various sectors of education (P-20), workforce development and child- and youth-serving systems” to build “partnerships across institutional boundaries, helping individuals and institutions tackle leadership challenges and leverage the resources of multiple partners to foster reform.”
The Institute for Educational Leadership does its work through three centers: the Center for Workforce Development, the Center for Family, School and Community, and the Center for Leadership. I’ll say that the IEL uses a lot of jargon on its website, so it’s a bit hard to get to the core of what they actually do–even their What We Do page isn’t all that helpful. The organization’s core activities seem to be research, leadership development, and policy work. If those sound like things that you want to work on, visit IEL’s Idealist page (their Jobs page doesn’t have any jobs). Right now they’re looking for a Program Assistant, and it looks like a great entry level opportunity.
