Jason Quiara is Senior Program Officer for the Education & Economic Mobility Program at the Joyce Foundation, where he currently leads an investment strategy to ensure the next generation of young people in the Great Lakes region graduate from high school with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in college, the workplace and life.

Before Joyce, Jason was Senior Project Manager at Jobs for the Future (JFF) where he partnered with national education leaders and state policymakers to develop policy solutions in K-12 schools and higher education systems.

Prior to joining JFF, Jason served as the director of state policy and research for the New England Board of Higher Education where he launched College Ready New England – a six-state policy campaign comprised of K-12, higher education and business leaders that worked together to identify new innovations to improve public education systems.

He received a bachelor’s degree in history and philosophy from Boston College and a master’s in education policy and management from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
