English Learner Leadership and Legacy Initiative (ELLLI)
ELLLI is a collaborative learning network that attracts mid-career leaders in English Learner education and advocacy as Fellows. ELLLI will include the historical context and lessons from the past to support building a roadmap for the future. Participants will be immersed in research, as well as mentorship and skill development to inspire and prepare them to work at multiple levels (state, district, community) to establish strategic action agendas, move policy and practice, develop and leverage research, work with media, and build and mobilize coalitions championing the right to quality education for English Learners.
The goal of this initiative is to develop a new generation of strong, well-informed, skilled, courageous and activist leaders to build and sustain the movement for educational equity and excellence for English Learners.
The ELLLI Program
ELLLI is primarily focused on supporting a cohort of fellows. To do this, the initiative relies on both traditional and experiential learning modes, including the use of mentors to support the development of individual fellows. Mentorship is an essential component of ELLLI. Development of the fellows will also be fostered by focused training (an Institute and several convenings), project field work, the use of readings and video-taped resources, and participation in a network of fellows. For maximum impact, we aim to extend the reach of the initiative beyond the initial core group of fellows, and will seek additional resources for this work.
