DeVos was not satisfied with what she was doing. She and her family became committed to doing everything they could to help more children. Her husband eventually ran for and was elected to State Board of Education in Michigan in 1990. Betsy herself decided to start a scholarship fund in order to help give more kids the opportunities they deserved. Her dedication would eventually extend even further.

These two groups included Children First America and the American Education Reform Council. Furthermore she is also responsible for a tax-credit scholarship program in Florida.

Currently DeVos is serving in perhaps her most influential role as the 11th U.S. secretary of education. She has spent a lifetime of work to get to this point. She credits watching her mother work as a public school teacher in Michigan as a big part of her inspiration to help the educational system. DeVos worked as a in-school mentor for at-risk children in Michigan for more than a decade. Her resume includes serving as chairman of The Windquest Group, an investment management firm.
