Become a Partner

Become a Partner

Empower motivated professionals to strengthen your organization.

 

Partner Organizations receive a multitude of benefits from The Broad Residency. These include added capacity from a highly capable individual with a strong interest in public urban education, funding (The Broad Residency subsidizes salaries and pays for 100% of the costs of recruitment, selection, and travel for professional development), retention of talent and much more. As Residents cultivate their leadership and management capacity through the program curriculum, we expect Partner Organizations to be active participants in the Resident’s development and long-term transition into the education sector.
