Leaders from all backgrounds have a role to play in the fight for educational equity. Join a community of passionate leaders who are working in and outside of the classroom to create opportunities for kids growing up in Jacksonville and Central Florida.
The movement for educational equity is in full swing across Florida. In Jacksonville, you'll join fellow corps members and alumni, as well as a multitude of education and equity advocates, to provide excellent and equitable educational opportunities to Jacksonville’s students. Across Central Florida, in cities like Tampa and Orlando, we have seen firsthand how our alumni, working in partnership with students and families, can create change. As such, our Central Florida region has committed to engaging our entire alumni network in new ways and leveraging our expertise in novice teacher training to empower education and equity leaders. Though we do not place first or second year corps members in Central Florida, the region is a hub of innovation, with unique programming and partnerships to meet student and community needs across Central Florida.
While cities like Jacksonville, Tampa and Orlando are distinct and offer personalized opportunities, each is full of potential and students with the fortitude to overcome inequity and injustice.
