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
During the summer, CBED conducts a seven-week apprenticeship program for aspiring high school and college-aged educators called the Freedom School Literacy Academy (FSLA). The goal of FSLA is to affirm low-income Black students by substantially increasing the number of Black teachers working with Black students, with a specific focus on social justice.
The Site Lead (SL) helps to organize and execute day-to-day operations of CBED’s Freedom Schools Literacy Academy Summer program. The Site Lead must be capable of managing an intergenerational staff and also be a strong communication liaison for families. The Site Lead must be committed to the goals and vision of the program, able to work collaboratively with program on-site leadership (coaches), all program constituents, and be familiar with the culture and dynamics of the community. The Site Lead will serve as a positive role model and mentor for other program staff and scholars. Site Leads are responsible for collaborating with onsite coaches for the supervision of Servant Leader Apprentices and Junior Servant Leaders, ensuring their professionalism, continued development as Servant Leaders, and the strong implementation of the program’s curriculum.
