Detroit Regional Chamber Board Leadership Program
We have partnered with the Detroit Regional Chamber to connect with business leaders interested in serving on a charter public school board in the Detroit region.
Well-governed charter public schools add incredible value to the communities and students they serve. The Detroit Regional Chamber recognizes this and invites interested individuals to consider putting their leadership experience to work to make a difference in public education by applying to join a charter school board.
The Charter School Board Leadership Program provides training to business leaders looking to support public education in the Detroit region. Participants are then connected to charter school authorizers for potential board placement.
