About the Fellowship
Opportunity 180’s Design to Edrupt looks to disrupt the current educational landscape by surfacing and supporting underrepresented PreK-12 future and current education leaders and helping to reimagine the future of learning. During the fellowship, individuals will have the opportunity to explore the idea of designing and launching a new learning environment, such as a school or program.
The Explore Stage, the first stage of our two-stage fellowship, occurs part-time, mostly nights and weekends, starting in January 2022. This stage will provide fellows with an opportunity to assess and explore their leadership readiness to design and launch a new school or program, develop and pilot a learning environment that is co-created with students and families, and identify multiple pathways (e.g. school or program operating within schools) to launch their idea.
Fellows who are interested in and ready to continue to the Cultivate Stage will continue to “pilot” their ideas and try their hand at launching an idea from scratch, while planning, managing, and executing logistics, operations, and providing team support.
The successful fellowship strategy was originally designed and launched in Denver. CO in 2017 by Moonshot edVentures with the goal of creating a diverse pipeline of leaders dedicated to serving all kids. The expansion into Clark County will be operated and executed by Opportunity 180 with training and limited support from Moonshot edVentures.
