EdRedesign works collaboratively across sectors with community teams and leaders, including mayors, superintendents, leaders of health and human service agencies, and leaders of community-based organizations, and other national intermediaries to support cross-sector cradle-to-career collaborative action and personalization initiatives to open pathways to opportunity for all children and youth. We partner with other field-leading organizations to develop talent to lead this work. We also partner with researchers building the evidence base for our field.

Paul Reville, Rob Watson, Tauheedah Jackson, and Lynne Sacks—all members of our leadership team, teach graduate courses at Harvard Graduate School of Education that prepare students to work in the cradle-to-career field, covering topics like collective impact approaches, leadership, and research and evaluation.
At EdRedesign, we work each year with Harvard doctoral student fellows, research assistants, and interns, producing dozens of graduates that are pursuing careers within the cradle-to-career place-based partnership field with national intermediaries, backbone organizations, place-based partnerships, governmental agencies, and community-based organizations. Check this page for available student positions in research, data analysis, communications, nonprofit management, and other areas of our work, including By All Means and Success Planning.
Working with EdRedesign for two years was invaluable to my career development. When I started, I had a general interest in comprehensive, integrated services as a way to promote economic mobility and equitable outcomes for children and families. EdRedesign was my entry point to the growing field of place-based, cradle-to-career partnerships. As a Research Assistant, I learned about different models for place-based work, met inspiring practitioners and thought leaders, and was offered an opportunity to serve as a Teaching Fellow for a related Harvard class. My mentors at EdRedesign cared about my development and were always generous with their career guidance, connecting me to summer internship and full-time roles. Now, I have a completely new vocabulary to describe my career interests and an expanding network in the field.
