ABOUT JEREMIAH PROGRAM
Jeremiah Program (JP) is a nonprofit organization helping single mothers invest in themselves so they can thrive and take steps towards economic mobility by helping them access higher education, affordable childcare, housing, skills training and career development. JP envisions a world where poverty is no longer feminized; where race is not divorced from gender; where career and financial opportunities are not gentrified; and where women who experience poverty not only hold a seat at the table but hold the mic and curate the agenda.
Jeremiah Program offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for disrupting poverty, two generations at a time. At JP, we believe that no mother should have to make the untenable choice between investing in herself or supporting her children. Our holistic approach invites single mothers into the leadership tent and encourages families to bring all of their identities to bear in achieving their goals in pursuit of economic mobility.
Founded in 1993, this year JP is supporting over 1,000 moms and kids across nine residential and non-residential campuses: Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Brooklyn, Fargo, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Rochester. Learn more about JP and our work here.
Our Child Development Center (CDC) Teachers bring warmth, patience, and understanding to the classroom every day, encouraging children to learn and grow while reflecting the Jeremiah mission, and encompassing the values, vision, and purpose of the program. They inspire children to be lifelong learners using curriculum that promotes social, physical, verbal, and cognitive development. Our CDC Teachers are committed to making their center successful and know that creating meaningful relationships with children, families, and their team play a crucial role in that success.
At Jeremiah Program we provide instruction using a collaborative co-teach model where teachers work together to create lesson plans and activities that bring together the strengths of each team member in service of our children. From time to time, CDC Teachers may be asked to work within the full range of classrooms, from infants to pre-kindergarten. CDC Teachers also work closely with the Family Services Team to ensure families are getting all the support they need.
The ideal candidate is passionate about providing a foundation for lifelong learning and development, building on the individual strength of each child and can challenge them at various levels during the same lesson/activity to keep engagement.
