Education Pioneers Announces Opening of Application for Fellowship’s Summer Track
National nonprofit seeks 200 leaders in 2017 to improve equity and opportunity for all students
OAKLAND, Calif. – Education Pioneers (EP), a national nonprofit that places skilled professionals in critical, non-instructional leadership positions throughout K-12 public education, today opened its 2017 application for the Education Pioneers Fellowship’s 10-week summer track.
EP Fellows work to solve problems from outside of the classroom so students and teachers succeed in the classroom. The nonprofit is seeking 200 professionals with diverse skills and from diverse backgrounds to spend 10 weeks this summer making an impact for Partners organizations in locations across the country.
“We’re seeking hundreds of exceptional leaders to offer their skills and insights to our Partner organizations serving public school students,” said Scott Morgan, Founder and CEO of Education Pioneers. “The Fellowship’s summer track offers skilled professionals the opportunity to try out and accelerate a career in education – and more than seventy percent of our Alumni are inspired to make an impact as education leaders.”
Fellows participating in the summer track take on important, often behind-the-scenes work in data and analysis, operations, strategy, and program and project management and more for EP’s partner education organizations, including the nation’s largest school districts, charter school organizations, federal agencies, and education nonprofits.
Applications for the Fellowship’s summer track are now open.
