We want leaders who understand us.
Surge. Empowering Education
Leaders of Color.
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.
The Surge Fellowship
Our signature program, the Surge Fellowship, is a year-long program that enhances the expertise and apptitude of emerging education leaders of color, empowering them to transform the system.
