Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

National Voices Fellowship

In 2019, 50CAN brought together the inaugural cohort of the National Voices Fellowship, a program designed to strengthen the leadership and public profiles of the next generation of commentators, correspondents and analysts across the education sector.

The fellowship is grounded by a collaborative, bipartisan pragmatism and offers mentorship and training by some of the education sector’s most prolific thought leaders and communicators.

Population(s) Served

ConnCAN is leading an advocacy movement to ensure that all kids in The Constitution State have access to a high-quality education, regardless of their address.

Our work to improve education in Connecticut springs from our belief in the immense potential found within every child and our responsibility as citizen advocates to do everything we can to ensure we have an education system that lives up to this potential.

We strive to be resourceful and nimble as we advance the changes our kids deserve. We aim to see every win—and every setback—as an opportunity to learn what’s working today and envision what might be possible tomorrow. We know we don’t have all the answers and that we can only succeed by constantly testing our assumptions, working in close collaboration with others and investing in an inclusive culture enlivened by diverse viewpoints from across our state.

Population(s) Served

NewMexicoKidsCAN serves as a catalyst and conduit to advocate for community-informed, student-centered and research-backed education policies that work best for the children of New Mexico. By connecting policy, instructional practice and politics, we reimagine what is possible in New Mexico’s public education system.

Population(s) Served

TEN recognizes that access to high-quality education is a fundamental right of all people. Education systems that currently exist have been unequal and oppressive to certain sections of our city for too long. TEN exists to change that system by partnering with parents, students, community leaders, charter providers, local school districts and elected officials. We will build power with communities to demand innovation, improvement and high-quality public schools in all neighborhoods.

Population(s) Served

TennesseeCAN empowers local stakeholders—from community members to policymakers—to advocate for improved K-12 education policies that put Tennessee children first. Together, we are working to ensure students have access to high-quality schools, teachers and resources that prioritize their unique educational talents and needs.
