“The Surge Fellowship is the quintessential embodiment of what it means to cultivate excellence among education leaders of color. It represents the gold standard of a movement that empowers black and brown education professionals to transform our current educational landscape. The calculated curation of this experience is what sets it apart from any other career acceleration program, bar none. It stimulates a metamorphosis of the mind, as well as the heart. The Surge Fellowship has been a defining moment in my personal and professional life and is guaranteed to be the same for anyone privileged with the opportunity to participate in the fellowship.”
