Finance and Operations Associate

The Future Project
The Future Project is building a movement to transform schools across the country into places that unlock the passion and purpose of everyone inside them.  For the past five years, we have accomplished this by inventing a new role in the American high school: the Dream Director.  Dream Directors are coaches, social entrepreneurs, and organizers who work to inspire passion in every young person within the school, specifically by coaching students to launch transformative Future Projects that incite culture change and positive student achievement.  

Over five years, The Future Project has become one of the fastest growing organizations within the American education sector, raising over $15m in capital and reaching over 30,000 young people across eleven American cities. 

So, if you're looking for work that matters, an inspired team, growth opportunities, flexible hours, an urgency of purpose, and competitive non-profit compensation (with full benefits), consider joining us.
