With LEE, School Board Partners has been able to increase the amount of supports and resources available to our growing community of fellows and alumni. Our fellows and alumni are eager to engage with LEE’s programming and find it valuable for strengthening their leadership and impact. They also benefit from the ability to tap into and learn from a larger network of diverse leaders in education.
Our partnership with LEE has been instrumental in empowering Public Allies alumni to level up their professional development with the support and resources available to them from LEE, which is leading to transformative impact in their communities. LEE’s top-tier career coaching, exclusive networking opportunities with values-aligned leaders, and specialized training and supports to run for political office are not just resources; they are game-changers. These tools don’t just enable our alumni to contribute but to LEAD, SHAPE, and INSPIRE impact.
At New Memphis, we are focused on developing more and better leaders through our programs. LEE has been an incredible value add for our program participants, allowing them to continue growing their skills and their community of civic-minded leaders. But most importantly, LEE has helped our network of leaders take action. LEE offers tools for people to make change and inspires our leaders to get involved in the city in meaningful ways. Partnering with LEE has been an incredible complement to New Memphis’ local programs and has undoubtedly strengthened our work and impact.
TFA and LEE’s shared goal of inspiring a diverse group of leaders to use their experiences, insights, and relationships with students and families as the foundation for deep civic engagement fuels our collaboration. Through LEE members, we are able to work towards educational equity and excellence through systems level change, so that all communities and all children have the opportunity to learn, lead, and thrive. LEE trainings, leadership cohorts, policy fellowships, career advancement resources, and coaching supports provided to TFA corps members and alumni accelerates pathways in policy and advocacy to next-level roles that create the change we need in our systems across the nation. Our continued partnership signals our shared commitment towards developing our leaders and creating real collective impact in our communities.
