Jason Quiara


Jason Quiara is Senior Program Officer for the Education and Economic Mobility Program, which works to ensure all students—especially those who are low-income and minority—are prepared for success in college, the workplace and life by ensuring these students are taught by excellent educators, and supporting innovations and policies that aim to prepare students for academic and career success after high school.

Jason is currently managing a multi-state initiative called the Great Lakes College and Career Pathways Partnership that spans four communities in the Great Lakes region. The Partnership serves as a primary strategy to ensure students in the K-12 education system build early college and career momentum for success in postsecondary education and the workplace through partnerships between school districts, colleges, and employers.

Before coming to Joyce, Jason worked at Jobs for the Future (JFF) where he was responsible for state policy strategy and national advocacy activities to support the expansion of early college pathways that integrate high school and postsecondary education experiences, such as early college high schools.

Prior to joining JFF, Jason served as the director of state policy and research for the New England Board of Higher Education where he directed College Ready New England. The initiative aimed to promote innovative policies to improve high school graduation rates and postsecondary outcomes for low-income and minority students across the New England region.

He received a bachelor’s degree in history and philosophy from Boston College and a master’s in education policy and management from Harvard University.
