I love working for CoEd. Every day, I get up and am excited to go to work. I believe 100% in the cause and feel blessed to work with such an amazing group of people who share my values and passion. It’s great to work in such a functional, low-drama workplace. A place where we all put our service above ourselves; where we are committed to excellence; where we support each other no matter what; and where obstacles and problems are treated not as negatives, but as positives as new opportunities to serve, show excellence, and cheer each other on. I am blessed to work at CoEd!
“I’m learning so much from visiting students and their families in the rural areas. They are all trying so hard to overcome the cycle of poverty, but they always open their hearts to us. And it is a privilege to meet CoEd supporters from all over the world who are committed to helping—they walk the talk of “love thy neighbor.” In my own small way, I know that I’m using my gifts and talents to help Guatemala, and it’s powerful to work with others who are doing the same.”
Juan Pablo Maldonado
“Working for CoEd allows me to use my knowledge to improve others’ lives. Since I know that not everyone has had the same opportunity as me to go to school, it’s amazing to be able to serve as a communication bridge between CoEd’s supporters and the Guatemalan students we serve. It makes me feel very motivated and happy.”
“Since founding the organization, I’ve always tried to hire people that were smarter than me. As a result, we’ve developed an all-star team in both the US and Guatemala. One of the best things about working here is that you get to go through life with this solid-gold group of people.”
“What has kept me at CoEd for a decade is what I consider the trifecta:
1) CoEd has a fantastic mission focused on addressing root causes of poverty, rather than merely treating its symptoms.
2) I’m constantly inspired and motivated by the amazing people I get to work with (staff and supporters).
3) CoEd is strengths-based, so every day, I get to put my evolving skills and experience to work in ways that are both challenging and fulfilling.”
“The CoEd community of staff and supporters is one-of-a-kind and as an organization it’s financially savvy, stable, and sustainable. Anyone who desires to work in the non-profit sector would be lucky to land a position at CoEd.”
“It’s good people doing good work.”
