Update on Institute

To prioritize the health and well-being of our corps members, staff and students during this time period, we have ​shifted our Summer 2020 Institute to virtual training. We are working hard to ensure that our 2020 corps members will be ready to lead in our Bay Area schools.

While a virtual Institute is a shift to our model, we are quickly building out a best-in-class virtual learning experience to ensure the best possible preparation for our incoming corps members, as we also work quickly to determine the best ways to support our network.

2019-2020 Rising Leaders Fellowship
