Jonathan Feinstein, Director of Community Engagement

A former classroom teacher in his home state of North Carolina, Jonathan has taught in both traditional and charter school settings through Teach For America and KIPP. After leaving the classroom in 2007, he was hired by imc2, a strategic and creative agency based here in Dallas, to author its first corporate social responsibility report. Over the following four years, he led strategic initiatives to improve the agency’s impact on employees, clients, local communities, and the environment. These efforts included a pro bono program, which delivered more than $2 million in strategic and creative marketing services to selected nonprofits since 2009, with a special focus on education-focused organizations in Dallas.

Jonathan maintains a strong relationship to the community where he first taught, helping to found Henderson Collegiate, a charter school in Vance County, North Carolina.

Jonathan earned a B.A. in Ethnic Studies from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.
