Education Manager, Impact and Evaluation

Posted by Alliance for Decision Education on June 21, 2022

The Alliance for Decision Education (“the Alliance”) is a non-profit education organization leading the growing call to have decision-making skills, or Decision Education, taught in schools K-12 across the country. We believe that equipping students with skills proven to drive better decisions will enable them to perform better in school and in life, improving health, finances, family outcomes, and their communities. Our work is backed by a growing number of teachers, parents, researchers, and business leaders who have seen Decision Education improve students’ lives and the lives of those around them. Our mission is to improve lives by empowering students with essential decision skills.

The Education Manager, Impact and Evaluation will be responsible for the design, implementation, and management of data analysis, collection, and reporting for our various K-12 initiatives. The Education Manager, Impact and Evaluation will report to the Director of Education as a part of the growing Education Department, which is responsible for leading the content and implementation of Decision Education. This position may be a ‘Senior Manager’ depending on a candidate’s qualifications and experience.

We expect this individual to adhere to the Alliance’s hybrid work schedule, working both remotely and from our office in Bala Cynwyd, PA.
