Anthony Shaw

Deputy Director

Anthony is the Deputy Director of the Connecticut Opportunity Project at Dalio Education. As a member of the Connecticut Opportunity Project Team, he will contribute to the mission of investing in and strengthening organizations that serve to improve the lives of disconnected and disengaged young people in Connecticut.

Before joining Dalio Education, Anthony was the Chief Program Officer at the Great Oaks (GO) Foundation. He joined GO after serving as the Senior Director of Community & Youth for the University Settlement Society of New York City. Prior to that he completed a Fellowship at Leadership for Educational Equity where he served as an education policy analyst in the NY State Senate. Previously, he was the Director of Partnerships at Teach for America, New York. In that role, Anthony was the project lead on the New York region’s partnership cultivation strategy in addition to managing the school partnerships in Brooklyn.

Prior to joining staff at Teach for America, Tony worked at City Year, Inc. as a Regional Impact Director overseeing service delivery as well as district and school partnerships for Orlando, Miami, Jacksonville, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia. In that capacity, Tony provided technical and program support for both City Year and public school staff members while simultaneously managing and cultivating school and district partnerships. Immediately before serving as a Regional Impact Director, Tony worked with City Year New York as their Managing Director of Program and Service for 4 years during which he managed an aggressive growth strategy that eventually doubled the size of City Year's AmeriCorps members and school partnerships in New York City.

Anthony began his career in youth development as a 2002 Teach for America Corps member teaching 4th and 6th grade at Public School No. 6 in Paterson, New Jersey. He graduated from Temple University in his hometown of Philadelphia with a B.A in Political Science and later earned his Ed.M. in Leadership at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education.
