New Leaders works to ensure high academic achievement for all children, especially students in poverty and students of color, by developing transformational school leaders and advancing the policies and practices that allow great leaders to succeed.
BellXcel is a national nonprofit which builds the capacity of schools and community-based organizations (CBOs) to provide evidence-based, out-of-school-time (OST) programs for PreK-8 children. Founded in 1992 as an afterschool program, BellXcel quickly developed a track record of success and is now a national OST leader, reaching more than 70,000 “scholars” annually through 150+ partner providers across 36 states. Nationally, 80% of scholars in BellXcel-powered programs attend Title I schools or live in low-income communities, and 80% are children of color. Rigorous evaluation shows that scholars make significant academic gains and build skills for life success.
