Classroom Today Defines Our Tomorrow

Our one-year, full-time, paid Fellowship program nurtures the most promising young talents into future leaders to bring education equity.

And it starts with teaching.


The Challenge

Children’s backgrounds dictate their future successes.

Economically disadvantaged children often receive less exposure, education resources, support and opportunities. Our education system is not designed to enable all children to realize their potential.

While there is no single solution to education inequity, it starts with a community of leaders. They take children’s perspective, understand real challenges, and commit to changing the system.

Create Impact You Can See

Placed as a full-time teacher, you lead long-lasting changes on your students, with freedom that no other regular teacher has, to challenge education’s presumptions and test new ways of teaching. 


Advance Your Leadership For Change

The essence of leadership is influence; that is you do in the classroom.

We invest in you to be the best leader and help you enter high impact careers with our mentors and employer network.


Join A Purpose-driven Community

Our Fellows are unique in their experiences, but united by the common purpose to reimagine our education system.

You learn, work and support each other as a collective force to lead systemic changes. 

Life In The Fellowship

We invest in you to become the best leaders in classrooms

The key to leadership is to inspire, motivate and change people. Once you step into your classroom, you start practicing by leading hundreds of students. We will help you become a strong classroom leader through our summer training, extensive coaching and ongoing development.
