Blue Engine is a New York City-based education nonprofit founded in 2010 to dramatically improve academic achievement for students in historically oppressed communities. We help schools restructure the classroom with trained teams of teachers who provide personalized, small group instruction for students in Algebra and English/Language Arts classes, creating the classroom conditions that enable students to thrive. We believe that the current structure of classrooms actively contributes to massive untapped human potential and an epidemic of lost talent in historically oppressed communities across this nation. Blue Engine partners with schools to fundamentally redesign the traditional classroom and employ an innovative team teaching model, dramatically accelerating academic progress so that all students have the choice to pursue college and career opportunities that reflect their unique talents. This year, Blue Engine is partnering with 9 schools, 100+ extraordinary educators, and 1,800 students; and the results are clear: 7-9 additional months of learning over the course of a single year, doubling the rate of student learning; increased high school and college-going rates; a growing alumni base of diverse, trained new educators. And yet, beneath all these statistics, the reason people come to work here is to witness, to create for as many young people as possible a more foundational truth: strong human relationships at the heart of classrooms where every single student is seen for who they are, what they need, and what they want to become. After seven years of operating in New York City, we are mapping out our plan to deepen our impact here and beyond.
Who We Are
Blue Engine is an organization that believes:
In the infinite potential of all humans
In an education system that works to liberate that potential
Teams enable outcomes that individuals alone cannot achieve
Good intentions cannot be confused with measurable results
Strong human connections are our lifeblood
Foundational Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity - Our Bedrock Value:
The prevalence of historic and current systems of oppression in our society fundamentally impact the lives of students we serve. These systems foster entrenched privilege for some while ensuring the systemic oppression and denial of equal opportunity for others. Only by assembling diverse, inclusive, and actively anti-racist teams will Blue Engine build alliances that disrupt and dismantle these systems at their root. Neutrality in this fight is a myth; there are only two paths forward. Either we actively work to dismantle these systems on behalf of young people or we remain complicit in maintaining the status quo. Our path is the first. This requires us to seek and embrace discomfort, learn from perspectives different from our own, and interrogate our own assumptions and beliefs through dialogue that builds towards a hopeful, empowered future for every student in every classroom in America.
We are looking for a team member who is invested in these core values, and embodies them in their work and leadership.
