Join Jeffrey in support of Support New Leaders this Giving Tuesday (Capital Region)
You, #GivingTuesday, & Our Students
A wise man once said, “there is nothing more unequal than the equal treatment of unequals”. Whether economically, socially, or educationally, whenever we fail to recognize the need to do more for those who have less, we are neglecting the very thing that makes us humans – compassion.
For more than 6 years, I have been committed to the mission, vision and work of New Leaders. Focused on ensuring high academic achievement for all children, especially students in poverty and students of color, New Leaders is developing transformational leaders to make this possibility a reality for our kids.
Please join me in supporting New Leaders during #GivingTuesday and this holiday season. Your contribution will support the DC Capital Region program (Baltimore, Prince George’s Co., and Washington DC).
$25. $50. $100. Every dollar counts.
Thanks in advance for your generosity and contribution.
Happy Holidays to you and your family.
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.
