Join Jaime in support of Support New Leaders this Giving Tuesday (NYC / Newark)


What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a national effort to encourage people to give back on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. New Leaders is devoting a whole month to raising awareness of the importance of school leadership, starting on December 2nd.
How does the Giving Tuesday campaign work?
We are kicking off a month-long staff fundraising campaign on Giving Tuesday and empowering New Leaders staff to share their powerful stories of why they are committed to developing transformational school leaders.
Where does my money go?
New Leaders is a national non-profit that develops outstanding educators into transformational principals, turning around schools in our neediest communities. Your gift will help offset the cost to recruit, train and support more of these school leaders through our Principal Partner program. The Principal Partner program provides a unique opportunity to see first-hand the power of our program through intermittent updates of one participant’s leadership journey over the course of the year.
How do I know my donation will make a difference?
Principals have a multiplier effect: every great principal can support 20 teachers and change the lives of 500 students. Leadership is the highest leverage investment you can make in education.


Thanks to...

New Leaders: Giving Tuesday

As most of you know, I work at New Leaders. We train school principals to raise achievement in high-poverty public schools. Great principals make sure that there’s a great teacher in front of every student, every year. We need more school leaders who not only believe that all children can learn but who actually have the skills to support teachers to be transformational.

Eric Blake is a principal in Brooklyn, New York trained by my organization. His school, the Science, Technology and Research (STAR) Early College High School, has had a graduation rate of over 90% for the last three years, far above the city average of 65%.

We want to train more leaders like Eric! Please help us lift kids out of poverty by giving them opportunity to attend great schools.

Help me and New Leaders get there. Will you donate to my cause by December 21? No amount is too small to help.

New Leaders is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization.

Thank you so much for your support of New Leaders, an organization I care so much about!

Help fund the training, development, and support of transformational school leaders

New Leaders trains tomorrow’s principals. The people who join this program share a deep belief that all students can achieve at high levels – that demography is not destiny for children in low-income communities. Your gift will support New leaders so they can more adeptly transform underperforming public schools and make a real difference in the lives of students from low-income communities.

About New Leaders

New Leaders seeks to ensure high academic achievement for all children—especially students in poverty and students of color—by developing transformational school leaders and advancing the policies and practices that allow great leaders to succeed.

Why focus on great leaders? School principals are the driving force behind school improvement. One outstanding teacher isn’t enough; students require multiple years of effective teachers to reach academic excellence, especially if they have fallen behind. Strong principals have the skills to support their existing staff to become outstanding teachers and to keep the strongest educators in their schools.

New Leaders’ leadership training begins with our Emerging Leaders Program, which builds a pipeline of promising future school leaders by growing the abilities of talented educators over the course of a year to lead other adults in raising student achievement.

Many Emerging Leaders go on to join our signature Aspiring Principals Program, a rigorous, one-year residency through which we train highly motivated, results-oriented individuals to strengthen our most struggling schools. To ensure that we get the best leaders into schools, we also identify promising talent through a national admissions process.

After their residency, we support our leaders in their critical first years on the job through the Principal Institute, which employs professional learning communities and strategic one-on-one coaching for one or two years to ensure our new principals—and their students—are set up for success. And with our new Leadership Practice Improvement program, we train current school principals and their leadership teams in best practices to raise student achievement.
