Educate!’ 5 Cultural Tenets:
  • We Put Youth First – The youth
    we serve come first. Always. In everything. That means we wake up thinking
    of ways we can serve youth even better and get the highest impact out of
    every dollar that we spend. It means Educate! doesn’t own a single
    vehicle, because we’d rather take the bus if it means one more student can
    participate. It means making every decision like the future depends on it
    — because if we get our way, it does.
  • We Are Always Learning – When
    you work at Educate!, educating yourself is part of your job too. We
    encourage every employee to find the best book on management; share the
    latest article on graphic design; bring in your favorite college mentor;
    or meet the researcher pushing the edge of the field. We are always
    thirsty for knowledge and love to share.
  • We Only Solve a Problem Once
    We are allergic to band-aids so we love the person who brings the new
    system to solve the problem for good, even problems we haven’t recognized
  • We Are Flexible – We thrive on
    change — we’re driving it. We are growing every day, so we have to adapt
    quickly to meet new challenges, and our team keeps up.
  • We Exceed Expectations – We
    assume we can achieve the impossible because we already have, year after
    year. We want our staff to create your own challenges, ask the toughest
    questions, and dream scary big!
