Seeking Members for BOARD OF DIRECTORS

for EDUCATION NONPROFIT

Do you reside in/near Chicago, Dallas, or Houston?

Do you have experience with law, finance, or community services?

Are you passionate about education and equity?

Do you want to be an active agent of change in your community?

Educate. Radiate. Elevate. Is closing equity gaps with quality education support

We have open seats on our Board of Directors. We are seeking members who are residents of Illinois or Texas and who have legal, finance, and/or community/family services experience.

Our 501(c)(3) was just founded in IL & TX in November 2020, so this is a unique opportunity to play an active role in the early evolution of our development. We need strategic thinkers who can dedicate time and guidance to ensure the success of our programs.

About Us:

Inequities were spotlighted as a result of pandemic school closures. So our founder, a veteran operator of a tutoring business, branched off to form a separate nonprofit for students who cannot afford tutoring.

Our purpose is to strengthen the educational achievement of underserved K-12 students by providing them with high-quality instruction from experienced tutors who will assist them with academics, enrichment, and test prep as well as essential learning and life skills.

Our mission is to minimize the disproportionate learning losses for low-income students of color to provide economic, social, and emotional stability for the youth served, their families, and their community.

Our goal in our first full school year of operation is to provide equitable education support to at least 30 students this school year, with an upward trajectory for the following years.

What you’ll do:

  • Serve as an ambassador, advocating for E..R.E., spreading awareness and inspiring interest among your personal and professional network (including sharing posts on your social media at least once per month)
  • Be knowledgeable and up-to-date about E.R.E.’s services
  • Work cooperatively with the E.R.E. active committees
  • Participate in 1.5-hour quarterly meetings via Zoom, reading the materials beforehand
  • Contribute or raise a minimum of $500/year

We’d love to get to know you better!
