Moonshot has supported 31 Fellows over two cohorts to design and lead charter schools, microschools, district turnaround schools, and after school programs. Fellows go on from our program to receive support from organizations such as 4.0 Schools, Camelback Ventures, High Tech High, and have secured grants from local and national funders. Of these Fellows, 90% identify as women and/or people of color.
Via Talk To Action, edGarage, and Startup Weekend EDU, Moonshot has made over 1,000 touchpoints with the community over the last several years.
The Moonshot Fellowship allows individuals to explore designing and launching a new learning environment, such as a new school or program. Our three-stage program focuses on leadership development, designing and piloting your learning environment alongside communities, identifying and supporting Fellows on the best pathway to launch, connections to local and national networks, and doing this work alongside like-minded individuals.
Talk to Action is Denver’s leading DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) initiative in education. Talk to Action, a volunteer-led network brings together educators to focus on issues on the organizational and individual levels to ensure that educators of color in the K-12 ecosystem thrive.
Moonshot also supports the education entrepreneurship ecosystem, by co- founding and sponsoring the co-working space edGarage and being one of the early, strong, consistent collaborator on Denver’s Startup Weekend EDU with TechStars.
