Position Description

The Pulitzer Center is an independent journalism organization based in Washington, DC, that supports in-depth engagement with underreported global affairs. In its 10-year history the Pulitzer Center has sought to shine light on issues that are often ignored and sponsors international reporting across all media platforms as well as an innovative program of outreach and education. We look for the widest reach possible in the reporting we support, sustaining engagement through online data interactives and e-books as well as long-form documentaries and photography exhibits. We organize nearly 500 events each year for public, K-12, and college audiences to give our grantees the opportunity to speak about their work and to lead journalism workshops.

The Education Specialist will be a key member of the education department at the Pulitzer Center, working under the supervision of the Education Director on two core programs: the Global Gateway program and the Lesson Builder. The Education Specialist will play a vital role in a collaborative effort to develop a strategic plan to promote and support the wider use of the Global Gateway by teachers in our key cities—Washington, DC; Philadelphia; Chicago; and St. Louis—as well as expand to other locations. S/he will also help to devise and implement a plan to expand the use of the Pulitzer Center’s Lesson Builder tool among secondary school teachers and university professors and to identify and recruit donors to sustain our education work overall.
