PHENND Fellows- Engagement Specialist
The Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders is a nonprofit organization that develops, engages, and retains principals and system leaders who transform schools, dramatically improve student outcomes, and drive systemic change to prepare all Philadelphia students for college, career, and life. Our fundamental belief is that Philadelphia’s principals and school system leaders change students’ lives. Through an investment in results-driven leadership development experiences, we empower individuals to drive student outcomes and advance equity in Philadelphia’s district, charter, and faith-based schools. Our flagship experience, the Neubauer Fellowship in Educational Leadership, provides proven principals with the resources and guidance to sharpen their leadership capacities. The Fellowship is a transformative two-year experience that develops critical leadership skills needed to elevate school performance and student outcomes in their schools and across the city. Fellows receive best-in-class professional development and build relationships with a network of outstanding peers who share strategies and problem-solve with one another. As Neubauer Fellowship alumni are promoted, they join Leaders of Leaders, designed to provide the tools needed to effectively supervise and develop principals, improve principal practice, and increase student outcomes. Fellowship alumni also serve as coaches to promising principals in our Performance Partners experience, where high-potential principals deepen the instructional skills necessary to coach teachers, resulting in improved teacher practice and student outcomes. We serve nearly 150 school and system leaders across the city who impact nearly 100,000 Philadelphia students every day. This critical mass of leaders has the power to dramatically change students’ lives. The PHENND Fellow will support our programming and highlight effective practices to improve the retention and performance of Philadelphia’s school and system leaders.
