FOCUS ON RESULTS AND LONG-TERM IMPACT
We are led by the belief that every child has the right and ability to succeed. We work to achieve long-term sustainable results and make decisions aimed at the greatest possible impact. We try to find an appropriate balance between effectively achieving short-term results and implementing long-term impact. Whenever possible, we use data to measure our effectiveness and to direct our actions. We deal with difficulties and adapt our approach when we fail to achieve our goals on time.
We always act as ambassadors for the organization and our mission. We act with perseverance – even in the most difficult and tense moments we remain calm and professional. We do not forget that we are all representatives of Teach For Bulgaria and present ourselves in the way we want others to see our organization. We comply with the agreed deadlines and work effectively. We always use appropriate language and tone of communication.
We strive to create sustainable and meaningful partnerships with our teammates and partners. We help ourselves to achieve our common goals. In our work with our teammates we are friendly and honest, open to feedback and supporting. We show the necessary patience to understand the perspective of others and adapt our communication and actions so we can achieve effective cooperation and realize our common goals.
We tackle challenges with willingness and energy. We look for brave, innovative solutions, without sacrificing our professionalism and focus on long-term results. We are open to new ideas and experiences, we work outside our comfort zone, and we try out new solutions to achieve our mission.
RESPECT AND HUMILITY
We show respect towards people from diverse backgrounds and age, with different beliefs and experiences. We do not make quick assumptions about people and we believe in their potential for excellence. We are open and curious about different viewpoints.
We strive to constantly develop and improve themselves and our organization, taking advantage of every opportunity to do so and helping our teammates to do so.
We are a driven community, aiming high and striving to end educational inequality.
Our shared motivation has led us to achieve great things. We have worked alongside others to change the lives of thousands of young people in Bulgaria, but there is still so much more to be done.
We are committed to working ever harder to close the gap in achievement, access and aspiration between the Bulgaria’s poorest and wealthiest children. And we want you to join us.
