Supporting school leadership with systems change leaders

Our focus is supporting our district partners in improving academic excellence and equity in communities across our nation. Our systems change leaders work alongside school partners and their staff to advance the academic and personal growth of students in the classroom, and beyond. You can see facts about who we are and what we do when you download this overview about us.

How our support model works

As a leadership development program, we seek out those who possess the perspectives and qualifications necessary to become great teachers – and foster their skills to become lifelong leaders for educational excellence and equity.

Teacher Corps

Participants in our teaching program commit to teach at least two years in a region where we work. These passionate, equity-focused leaders are placed with the best interests of each region, district, school, and community in mind. 

Many corps members decide to continue their time in the classroom beyond their two-year commitment – often staying within their placement district or region. Others pursue education-focused careers or leadership positions, continuing to work for the betterment of future generations within their communities.

Ignite Fellowship

Our national tutoring program, Ignite, builds on our experience with school partners by recruiting and developing leaders who join classrooms virtually to accelerate and nurture student learning, belonging, and growth through small group tutoring sessions.

Alumni Network

Our diverse network of alumni leaders are passionate about advancing and advocating educational equity in the United States. Their work helps ensure opportunities for every learner by illuminating new paths in education, and strengthening, rebuilding, and reimagining schools in disadvantaged and low-income communities.
