Educators Rising California is electing its first-ever group of Student Officers to serve on its Executive Council next month.
Educators Rising CA is dedicated to attracting promising students to pursue education-related careers and to helping them develop the skills and strong leadership traits that are found in high-quality educators. The organization also provides students with valuable leadership opportunities, including the newly announced State Officer positions.
Students elected to the Executive Council will serve as ambassadors for the organization and will have multiple opportunities to engage in activities to build their own leadership skills. All eligible students are encouraging to apply for candidacy as Educators Rising CA State Officer! (See Article VII, Section 1 in the application for eligibility.)
Effective state officers are articulate, self-motivated, outgoing, conscientious students with a passion for Educators Rising CA’s mission and vision. They will be key to promoting the organization as essential to the cultivation of tomorrow’s great educators. Officers must be comfortable with public speaking and connecting with education stakeholders (students, teachers, administrators, policymakers, etc.) both virtually and in person.
Educators Rising CA is looking for the following Student Officers:
- Southern Region Representative
- Central Region Representative
- Northern Region Representative
The deadline to apply for one of the positions is October 20, 2017. Applications include a written form, resume, two letters of recommendation and a two-minute video. Elections will be held October 27-30th, and the new State Officers will be announced on Tuesday, October 31st.
