The Pahara Fellowship seeks to strengthen and sustain a diverse community of outstanding, values-driven leaders who are transforming public education. Through the Fellowship, we aim to identify exceptional leaders who can transform the education system so that every child is prepared to lead a free and fulfilling life. We help them achieve this goal by providing transformational leadership development opportunities.


Using the time-tested methods of text-based dialogue, mindfulness techniques, and grounding in nature, the program provides participants the opportunity to reflect on the leadership, identity, equity and the values tensions involved in effective and enlightened leadership. Each cohort intentionally reflects a spectrum of political and ideological perspectives, and includes 20-24 extraordinary leaders supported by a team of highly-skilled moderators.


Once the Fellowship is complete, Fellows are members of the Pahara community and are provided sustaining program offerings for the duration of their careers.
