QUIT YOUR DAY JOB AND COME CHANGE THE WORLD.
A mission like ours needs a perspective like yours.
We’re on a mission to advance educational justice for refugees and immigrants. We want to extend and deepen the welcome mat for all newcomers. We want to radically change the way education is experienced for millions of children, and we’re just getting started. Explore our job openings below and join the team.
We are a team.
Changing the world is difficult work and cannot be done alone. We have a team environment, working together to push ourselves to be the best. We celebrate our wins and acknowledge our losses, always adapting and innovating our craft.
At Fugees, we’re guided by what we value.
We claim the pure, sweet, goodness of childhood as a birthright for our kids, to make it clear throughout their time with us that it is not too late, and we are not too busy for childhood.
We do the right thing because it is the right thing, not because it may result in recognition. When it does, we acknowledge that our successes are never ours alone. We accept our own limitations without defensiveness or judgement and by being open to new ideas, advice, and criticism. We take responsibility and learn from our mistakes.
The playing field is not yet equal. We strive to make choices that amplify the voices of those who have been silenced, lower the barriers to those who have been blocked, and actively place the group’s success above the individual’s. We are committed to removing all barriers to access for our community.
We do our best. Does this mean we are THE best? No. We continue to push ourselves to perform better, continuously improving ourselves and those around us. We pay attention to details, we don’t let the small things slide, and we believe that critical feedback is a compliment; it means we believe a person is capable of more.
Ultimately, our success is measured by the success of our students. We do not do FOR someone when there is the option to do it WITH them. Through opportunities to practice self-efficacy, our students learn to take responsibility, to use their voices, and to become leaders.
At the heart of all learning is strong relationships, and those relationships cannot happen without mutual respect. We honor the dignity of everyone in our community, and we uphold a standard of behavior that reinforces the importance of respect – for each other, for ourselves, and for our environments.
