In partnership with DC Public Schools and support from the DC Public Education Fund, The Literacy Lab launched the Leading Men Fellowship in 2016. Through the Leading Men Fellowship, The Literacy Lab is helping to diversify the teacher pipeline by engaging recent high school graduates in exploring a career in early childhood education. Leading Men Fellows participate in a year-long, residency-style program which provides an opportunity to build professional skills while preparing students to become strong, lifelong readers.

We currently serve in the following cities: Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD; Milwaukee, WI; Richmond, VA; Portsmouth, VA; Atlanta, GA; Cincinnati OH; and Phoenix-Mesa, AZ. Please email for more information on our service locations and ways to expand our partnerships to new locations throughout the country.
