Speak with Purpose is growing our team!

Do you dream of reimagining the education system by amplifying unapologetic youth voices? Speak With Purpose (SWP) formerly We.APP (We Act. Present. Perform.) is an education/arts nonprofit in Seattle/Renton that partners with classroom teachers during the school day, using the transformative power of public speaking to empower young scholars to dismantle prevailing narratives, uplift their cultures and communities, forge self-authored identities and become forces for change.

We are looking for highly skilled educators, teaching artists, and activists with an education focus to join us for the 2024-2025 school year. If you are passionate about empowering youth to see themselves as advocates for a better future by teaching them to use collaboration, writing and performance skills to reach an audience’s hearts and minds, we are the organization for you. BIPOC and people holding other marginalized identities especially encouraged to apply, as we look to place teachers in our classrooms who share lived experience with the youth we serve.

Please see our website https://www.speakwithpurpose.org/employment for a detailed job description, and apply to become an Educator-Innovator on our team by emailing your resume and cover letter! Please send any questions to Alex (alex@speakwithpurpose.org) and Krystal (ksmith@speakwithpurpose.org).

*applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and will stay open until July 15th. For priority consideration apply by July 12th.
