We want leaders who understand us.


Surge. Uniting and empowering
the next education leaders.

Welcome to the Surge Institute

We have an educational disconnect in our country.

More than 48% of our K-12 children are black or brown.

But only 17% of their teachers, 6% of their superintendents and 11 %

of their school board members look like them.

At Surge Institute, we are transforming the face of education.


The Surge Fellowship Program

The Surge Fellowship is our signature program for emerging

educational leaders of color which identifies and cultivates promising

talent in education to provide them with the expertise and aptitude

they need to not only succeed, but soar.
