Principals work together during the Leverage Leadership Institute


In order to attract the highest caliber of school leaders, the Leverage Leadership Institute Fellowship will remain tuition-free for 2020-21, subject to change in future years. At all in-person trainings and convenings, Relay provides all hotel accommodations and meals. Fellows (or sponsoring organizations) are responsible for travel to and from sessions.
