What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a national effort to encourage people to give back on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. New Leaders is devoting a whole month to raising awareness of the importance of school leadership, starting on December 3rd.
How does the Giving Tuesday campaign work?
We are kicking off a month-long staff fundraising campaign on Giving Tuesday and empowering New Leaders staff to share their powerful stories of why they are committed to developing transformational school leaders.
Where does my money go?
New Leaders is a national non-profit that develops outstanding educators into transformational principals, turning around schools in our neediest communities. Your gift will help offset the cost to recruit, train and support more of these school leaders through our Principal Partner program. The Principal Partner program provides a unique opportunity to see first-hand the power of our program through intermittent updates of one participant’s leadership journey over the course of the year.
Why participate?
This is an opportunity to be part of something bigger than New Leaders and send a strong message about the importance of giving back.
How do I know my donation will make a difference?
Principals have a multiplier effect: every great principal can support 20 teachers and change the lives of 500 students. Leadership is the highest leverage investment you can make in education.

About New Leaders

New Leaders seeks to ensure high academic achievement for all children—especially students in poverty and students of color—by developing transformational school leaders and advancing the policies and practices that allow great leaders to succeed.

Why focus on great leaders? School principals are the driving force behind school improvement. One outstanding teacher isn’t enough; students require multiple years of effective teachers to reach academic excellence, especially if they have fallen behind. Strong principals have the skills to support their existing staff to become outstanding teachers and to keep the strongest educators in their schools.

New Leaders’ leadership training begins with our Emerging Leaders Program, which builds a pipeline of promising future school leaders by growing the abilities of talented educators over the course of a year to lead other adults in raising student achievement.

Many Emerging Leaders go on to join our signature Aspiring Principals Program, a rigorous, one-year residency through which we train highly motivated, results-oriented individuals to strengthen our most struggling schools. To ensure that we get the best leaders into schools, we also identify promising talent through a national admissions process.

After their residency, we support our leaders in their critical first years on the job through the Principal Institute, which employs professional learning communities and strategic one-on-one coaching for one or two years to ensure our new principals—and their students—are set up for success.
