The Learning Community - Communication & Development VISTA
Founded in 2004, The Learning Community is a nationally-recognized public charter school that serves more than 574 K-8 students from Central Falls, Pawtucket and Providence, three of the four “core cities” of poverty in Rhode Island. As a result of the quality of our partnerships with families and our innovative teaching practices, our students are dramatically outperforming their peers, despite a poverty rate nearly twice the state average. 82% of our students are low-income, 94% are children of color, and 34% are English language learners. Our work has been recognized nationally by The NY Times, Washington Post, MSNBC Primetime, and Chelsea Clinton came for a visit. Our nation has grown to accept a link between poverty and student achievement. However, our students have closed the most significant student achievement gap between students of color and white students in the country (Annie E. Casey Foundation). Despite a poverty rate of 82%, which is significantly higher than both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, on the 2018 RICAS standardized test: The Learning Community’s low-income, Latino, Black and English Language Learners had a higher proficiency rate than their demographic peer groups in Rhode Island, Boston and throughout Massachusetts in both Math and English Language Arts. The Learning Community seeks a savvy, detail oriented, flexible and capable problem solver with demonstrated initiative, and excellent organizational, interpersonal and analytical skills to learn about our current donor base and create proposals and campaigns to grow our donor profiles. As an integral part of the school’s staff team, this person is responsible with supporting the creation and implementation of new systems and campaigns to connect with a wider support demographic that will provide more enriching opportunities for our students.
