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.

The states and regions listed below are officially affiliated with Educators Rising. 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.

*While it is free to join the national Educators Rising network, some states charge dues to support local programming for members. If your state is among those indicated with an asterisk, please contact your coordinator for more information on how to pay your state dues.
