Hope Street Group

The NCDPI announced a new partnership yesterday with the Hope Street Group, a national nonpartisan nonprofit that connects teachers directly to policymakers. The Hope Street Group is currently accepting applications for the North Carolina Teacher Voice Network. This network provides teachers with opportunities to meet leading policymakers and present them with solutions for elevating the teaching profession.

Members of the network stay in their classrooms full time and work with Hope Street Group 10-15 hours each month. Network members receive a $3,500 stipend for the 12-month commitment. Teachers with interest and experience in teacher leadership and education policy are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications are due April 10, 2015.
