Accelerator Program Details

The Leadership Accelerator is a selective 2-month fellowship program that supports early and mid-career KIPP alumni in any field who have demonstrated leadership, achievement, vision, and drive in their workplaces and communities. The fellowship equips and empowers alums through:

  1. Virtual and In-person Professional development workshops designed by the world-renowned Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)
  2. Digital access to a network of alumni, professionals, and leaders
  3. Participation in a peer cohort

This year’s leadership accelerator fellows will participate in small pods led by CCL-certified facilitators, who are also KIPP Alums! Each pod will meet weekly once a week from June through the end of July 2024 for no more than 90 minutes each week. Leadership Accelerator fellows will then come together at the 2024 KIPP Schools Summit (KSS) in Orlando, FL for 2.5 days of programming!

Starting in July 2024 and continuing through June 2025, all fellows will have access to a digital platform where they can create personal advisory boards.

A personal advisory board goes beyond mentorship and coaching. It allows fellows to build a dream team for success who are there to call on throughout the year and see their goals through to the end.

Accelerator Fellows will also become part of our Alumni Accelerator Fellows network, which is a community of alumni who are committed to becoming world-class leaders in their field and to staying connected with KIPP Regions and KIPP Foundation to support our initiatives through volunteering and giving back to our community.

This opportunity is guaranteed this year only! Don’t miss out and make sure to apply by May 12th, 2024!
