Nothing is more important to the futures of urban children than education.
You can help.
Start a school with Building Excellent Schools.
Building Excellent Schools is a national non-profit organization committed to improving the academic achievement of students in the nation's urban centers. Our flagship program is the Building Excellent Schools Fellowship, a full-time, comprehensive training program in general charter school leadership. As a Fellow, you:
Take the Lead: As a Fellow, you become the lead founder of a charter school project in your home territory. You will take responsibility for leadership and be able to make the important decisions to create a great school, both before and after it opens.
Get the Training: Through approximately 100 intense training days in Boston and structured work in your home territory, we teach you the formula that works with needy urban children. You will work within the formula to meet the particular needs of your students, but you can be sure that your school will be well-designed, highly structured, and strongly academically focused.
Get the Support: As a Fellow, your full time job is to design, build, and open your charter school. We pay you a professional level stipend of $80,000, help you bring the right people on board, and through our Follow-On Services, support you through your school's opening and beyond.
You know you can give meaning to the lives of countless children. If you take this opportunity and join the Building Excellent Schools Fellowship, you will create lasting impact not only in your life and the lives of your students, but in our country as a whole.
