Surge. Uniting and empowering
the next education leaders.

WELCOME TO THE SURGE INSTITUTE

At the Surge Institute, we are changing the face of education leadership.

More than 48% of school-aged children are black or brown, but just 17% of their teachers, 6% of their superintendents and 11% of their school board members look like them. This dearth of diverse leadership impacts decisions that affect our kids and our communities.

Surge is a movement, working to coach, enlighten and empower emerging leaders of color to fill the gap between communities and education leadership.

FELLOW SPOTLIGHT
