An Experience That Lasts

Through EP, Fellows launch and advance high-impact careers in education, and with ongoing access and opportunities to collaborate with and learn from a national network of 4,500+ Alumni, the EP experience lasts far beyond the 10 weeks or months of your Fellowship.

We are building a future where the EP network is the fabric through which Alumni are connecting, learning, and being inspired to drive change collaboratively with one another and with other leaders in education. Imagine the potential for collective change for kids and communities when EP Alumni come together -- they have the talent to transform.

Read on to learn how you can be part of the transformation and what opportunities are available for you as a member of our Alumni network.
