About our work in Kansas City
The Kauffman Foundation introduced the Education Rising commitment to bring high-achieving education professionals together who will prepare and lead Kansas City to make major changes for all students across the city. As part of this strategic initiative, Education Pioneers joins organizations such as City Year, Teach For America, the Kansas City Teacher Residency, and Leading Educators to prepare, develop and support individuals at varying levels of their career who will bring sustainable and successful changes to Kansas City.
Education Pioneers launched in Kansas City in 2016, recruiting and placing five fellows who brought their diverse perspectives and experiences to education organizations throughout the city. Education Pioneers is committed to the changes proposed by Kauffman Foundation through Education Rising, and we will continue to grow our presence through our short-term summer track and long-term career track fellowships with partners such as Kansas City Public Schools, Teach for America KC, and PrepKC.
