Ceily Moore is the Program Manager at Community Youth Development Institute 

“Being part of the Surge Fellowship means being in community with Black and Latinx leaders in education who believe in the brilliance of our young people and our communities. The fellowship provides a necessary space to learn from, and with, like-minded educators while also encouraging us to critically challenge the systems and policies that were intentionally created to work against us. I am excited for the opportunity to be in community as we reimagine ways to dismantle systems and look forward to utilizing the resources and skills I learn to become a better advocate, evaluator, and leader in education.”
