Employment Opportunities

Turnaround for Children is a rapidly-growing organization with a powerful and innovative approach for dramatic improvement of low-performing, high-poverty public schools. Through work in over 80 schools since 2002, Turnaround has developed a model for equipping schools to address recurring and predictable barriers to teaching and learning that arise from the circumstances of poverty.

Over the past decade Turnaround has gone from an idea to an organization with a $13 million budget and over 50 employees. Turnaround is at an incredibly exciting time in its development, as its school transformation model is attracting significant attention from policy makers, educators, and philanthropists locally and nationally, and it has become an important voice in the discourse around education policy at the federal level. The organization is often seen as “the missing piece” of the education reform puzzle.

Turnaround’s central office is located in midtown Manhattan. Its program operates in New York City, Washington DC, and Newark, New Jersey.
