Let's reimagine high school together.
We can't have transformation in our schools if we don't have it in school leadership.
With our partners at Springpoint, Barr Foundation has launched a fellowship to prepare the next generation of school leaders to do high school differently. The Transformative Leaders of Massachusetts (TLM) fellowship is a new kind of leadership preparation program for aspiring school leaders who have big ideas and dreams for the ways that high schools can be transformed to ensure that all young people find success in and beyond high school.
TLM fellows will be supported in leveraging their strengths, building a community of thought partners, and preparing for the next step of their personal leadership pathway. Meet the fellows below.
We are not currently accepting applications.
