Professional development outside of Teach for america

Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE):  Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, leadership development organization working to end the injustice of educational inequity by inspiring and supporting a diverse set of leaders with classroom experience to engage civically and politically. Through one-on-one coaching, fellowships, workshops and resources, LEE works to develop and inspire its members individually and collectively across all disciplines — as policy makers, advocates, elected leaders and community organizers. We believe that when a diverse group of leaders, grounded in their classroom experience, are in leadership roles, they will serve as a transformative force for and with students, communities and the broader movement for educational equity. LEE membership is free and open to all Teach For America corps members and alumni.
