Educational excellence and equity in every school, for every student.
We believe all children are capable of extraordinary things.
We believe educational leaders, in partnership with the communities they serve, have unparalleled impact on the academic success and well-being of their students.
New Leaders Alum, 2011
We believe schools excel when educational leaders create the conditions in which every child can thrive.
We believe communities flourish when educational leaders build more equitable and sustainable school systems.
We believe the strength and vitality of our society is determined by the quality of our schools.
Our Commitment To Equity
New Leaders cultivates and shapes exceptional school leaders to build equitable systems and create learning environments free from bias and limitation.
By disrupting inequities in our education system that disproportionately impact underserved students, and in particular students of color, we create more equitable outcomes for all students and the school communities we serve.
Our vision of educational equity is one in which the leaders within a system of schools represent the racial and cultural identities in their communities, and all leaders are equipped with the skills they need to advocate for and implement practices that propel all students to lifelong success.
