Program Overview: Designing tomorrow’s schools in partnership with communities necessitates strong community-based instructional leaders to partake in the design-thinking process.  EdVent210 is an unpaid fellowship, offered at no cost, to facilitate diverse, entrepreneurial school educators through the process of designing and prototyping a school.  Through a series of inspiration visits, design-thinking workshops, coaching, and piloting, cohort participants will create an early-stage school vision, student graduate profile, and future pilot plan.


Fellowship participants will be able to use these artifacts to support their application to for CEP’s EdLaunch fellowship for the 2020-2021 school year, a paid fellowship supporting leaders through authorization to launch their school models.
