Join a passionate team dedicated to improving San Francisco public schools. The Executive Assistant position offers an opportunity to further our impact in schools and contribute as a key member of the Education Fund’s team.

The San Francisco Education Fund envisions a world where our public schools are as renowned as our City. San Franciscans, known for their ingenuity, innovation and passion, partner with the Education Fund to help all of our students succeed. We know that success in life requires either a college or vocational certificate. In fact, research says that in San Francisco, adults without a college degree are four times more likely to make too little money to support a family.

As a result, the Education Fund’s mission is to harnesses the power of the community to equip every public school student, with the skills to succeed in college, career, and civic responsibility. We analyze data to target resources where they are needed most, engage volunteers in classrooms and provide grants to educators, to build a bright future for our City and its young people. We focus the community resources – volunteer time and money—most intensively around three critical milestones on the path to college:

  • Students reading proficiently by the third grade
  • Students successfully completing algebra by the eighth grade
  • Students prepared for and with a plan for college and career
