About The Center for Black Educator Development
The Center for Black Educator Development exists to (re)build a national Black Teacher Pipeline to achieve educational and racial justice by ensuring there is equity in the recruiting, training, hiring, and retention of quality educators that reflect the cultural background and share common socio-political interests of the students they serve. Launched in June 2019, the Center for Black Educator Development is revolutionizing education by dramatically increasing the number of Black educators so that low-income Black and other disenfranchised students can reap the full benefits of a quality public education.

About the Position
As the Servant Leader Coach (SLC), you have experience coaching and mentoring youth, teaching college students, and writing curriculum. The SLC will be responsible for implementing a high quality, academic-centered after school enrichment experience for Servant Leader Apprentices, scholars, and their parents. Servant Leaders (college school apprentices) attend weekly professional development sessions, receive feedback and coaching in an effort to nurture an ecosystem of academic support, youth development and accountability. The Center commits to equipping future educators with pedagogical understandings and tools that extend beyond the traditionally euro-centric models currently prevalent in the field of education. By doing so, the Center hopes that our SLAs will emerge from their apprenticeship committed to entering the field of education upon college graduation. The Servant Leader Coach will also be part of the onsite leadership and support the day-to-day logistics of the afterschool site.
