The Commit Partnership is an Equal Opportunity Employer that seeks to hire individuals with backgrounds similar to that of the stakeholders they serve. As an organization that embraces equity and inclusion, all employment decisions are based on business needs, job requirements and individual qualifications, without regard to race, color, religion or belief, national, social or ethnic origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, marital, civil union or domestic partnership status, or any other status protected by federal, state, or local laws.

About The Commit Partnership:

Founded in 2012, The Commit Partnership (“Commit” or “The Partnership”) has become the largest educational community-based collective impact organization in the U.S. as measured by either staff, by budget, or by total students supported (790,000+ ages 0 through 22). Encompassing 200+ partners across Dallas County, including almost every public school district, higher education entity and large foundation in the region, The Partnership also encompasses numerous independent private schools and public charter networks, businesses and educational non-profits. The Partnership’s overriding vision is relatively simple and straightforward: our community, working together, to ensure that all students receive an excellent and equitable education.

Over 100 different local, regional and national investors have supported the backbone to date. They include major foundations, high net worth philanthropists, and corporate partners, all of whom believe that investing in a dedicated backbone organization, armed with powerful data and the power to continually convene and align stakeholders, will lead to meaningful systems change as public and philanthropic funding streams align strategically behind what is needed to grow the number of students with a postsecondary degree or technical certificate.

 While The Partnership’s current geographic scope is Dallas County, its early success has led to its recent agreement to support similar burgeoning efforts in Ft. Worth/Tarrant County (350,000 K-12 students) and Houston/Harris County (~900,000 K-12 students). Collectively, these three regions educate 1 in 3 children in Texas and roughly 4% of the nation’s K-12 population. When aligned in the future by common data and goals, these regions could prove a powerful force behind aligned advocacy to alter state public funding streams and key policies benefiting students.
