We have set out to build a creative team capable of turning big social problems into transformative possibilities.
In our first five years, our flagship project, the Future Schools initiative, enabled 30,000+ young people across the country to discover and unleash their full potential by tapping into their natural passion and sense of purpose. We've built a nation-wide team of 100+ brilliant and generous leaders, an extraodinary group of advisors, and have raised $25MM in national venture philanthropy and millions more in regional funding from values-aligned investors.
We are on the verge of investing in the idea that the world needs an R&D team much akin to Bell Labs, Stanford Research Institute, or NASA for society. We will lead the charge to ask the big questions about what it takes to unlock possibility in young people, to transform schools, and to develop other experimental concepts that can turn into major innovations in society. That's where you come in.
We look for people who can contribute unique genius to our team, who make dreams happen, and who bring the same passion and purpose we enstill in our students to their work with TFP and to their work in the world. To make this possible, we pay competitively--including generous benefits, progressive parental leave policies, and unlimited vacation)--and work flexibly from a centrally located, beautifully designed Manhattan office. And, we work with some of the best minds in the country on challenges of national consequence.
