DIRECTOR OF MEMBERSHIP
PhillyCORE Leaders was formed in 2011 by a group of rising education leaders responding to the need to change the narrative around Philadelphia education. At the time, there were limited opportunities to engage in productive dialogueand highlight great things happening in Philadelphia's schools. With over 1,600 organizations working to improve Philadelphia's K-12 education system, we recognized the need to create more spaces for collaboration that were action-oriented and focused on solutions. A few informal conversations and brainstorming sessions later, the idea for PhillyCORE Leaders emerged.
With over 90 members to date, PhillyCORE Leaders is connecting rising leaders and leveraging the city's best asset - innovative, committed people - to create transformational change for Philadelphia's schools.
PhillyCORE Leaders is a diverse Coalition of Rising Education Leaders. Our mission is to build a more positive and collaborative education community by connecting rising leaders who are making an impact on Philadelphia education.
By leveraging the city's best asset - innovative, committed people - our vision is that Philadelphia will be a model educational community that transforms opportunities for all youth.
We achieve our mission and vision through three main objectives - building, elevating, and empowering.
Building a diverse coalition of collaborative education leaders who are committed to the long-term improvement of education in Philly.
Elevating educators and community members who are making a difference for Philadelphia students, and
Empowering education stakeholders with the information, resources, and skills they need to maximize their impact and sustain their work.
