Program Details

Building on the model of the Aspen Institute’s renowned Henry Crown Fellowship Program, as well as the Pahara-Aspen Education Fellows program, the pilot Pahara-Aspen Teacher Leader Fellows program convened participants in four seminars over the course of two years.

These seminars featured thought-provoking reading and discussions about leadership, diversity, and important issues in public education and social change. In addition, Fellows designed and undertook projects aimed at strengthening the teaching profession and the capacity of educators to improve student achievement.

When they completed the program, Fellows became part of the Aspen Global Leadership Network, which now includes nearly 2,100 entrepreneurial leaders from 49 countries who share a commitment to enlightened leadership and to using their extraordinary creativity, energy and resources to tackle the foremost societal challenges of our times.
