Workshops and Convenings

Our most important role is to provide organizational and staff development support for charter schools (focused on single-site) led by leaders of color. The most effective way for us to reach everyone is through network events like workshops and convenings.
We host workshops at national or regional charter school conferences which provides us with a valuable opportunity to provide direct support on issues charter school leaders of color face in our core areas of focus — academic and behavioral supports, finance and operations, teacher development, innovation and fundraising.
To ensure charter school leaders of color, their schools, students and families have representation in the national education ecosystem, NCC also partners with other organizations to host events focused on policy, action agendas, political actions, etc.

Consultancy Workshops Schedule

Our Consultancy Workshop series allows school leaders to share problems of practice in the areas of social emotional learning (SEL) and fundraising and development. During this time, school leaders will receive real time feedback on your reported problems of practice from other school leaders and subject-matter experts.
If there’s something happening at your school that would benefit from a thought partner or a problem of practice that you want to bring to this community, sign up below!
