Who We Are

State/Regional Affiliates

Educators Rising affiliates provide additional support and programming for members within their state or region. We are committed to providing affiliates with resources and information to be effective partners, and we work hand-in-hand with our affiliate coordinators to bring quality opportunities to our rising educators.

Don’t see your state listed here? No problem. You can still join Educators Rising even if your state doesn’t have a formal affiliate program.
