Founded in 2000, New Leaders envisions a day when there is excellence and equity in the American education system - when schools prepare all children, particularly students of color and those living in poverty, for success in college, careers and citizenship. They have grounded their approach in a simple belief: every classroom must be led by an effective teacher, and every school must be led by a great leader who is surrounded by a high-performing leadership team. They develop dedicated, skilled education leaders at every level - from teacher leaders to superintendents - equipping them to strengthen teaching and accelerate learning. Their programs cultivate instructional, adult, personal, organizational and cultural leadership skills in a natural progression that ensures participants' success in their current roles and as they grow in their careers. They work hand-in-hand with partners, delivering solutions that build on their strengths and address their most pressing priorities. Together, they identify and cultivate talented educators with diverse backgrounds, providing best-in-class leadership training that prepares them to elevate instruction across their schools, accelerate student learning and build a brighter future for their communities. And just as their leaders work to continuously strengthen their skills, they continuously refine their approach based on lessons from the field, so they can get better at what they do and advocate for conditions that enable even more great leadersâ and their students, to thrive.
