Notice of Summer Holiday Closure: July 1-15

NTC staff to take time for rest, connection, and restoration

The need for rest and restoration is a critical part of sustaining what it takes to meet our mission. To that end, NTC will close for a summer break from July 1-15 and return to work on Monday, July 18.

“Self-care is never a selfish act — it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others.”

— Parker Palmer

It’s easy to say that the time off is well-deserved. Our people are the magic of our organization. We strive to put every ounce of energy into our support of educators and the transformative school experiences they engineer and activate. This year we, along with our partners, have coached and supported nearly 20,000 educators in hundreds of school districts nationwide. And we’re proud of how we stepped up amid the pain and anxiety from what has been an exhausting school year for our students, educators, and greater communities. Despite our efforts, there remains real disparity in education throughout this country. We must press on.

To do so, we recognize that the wellness and well-being to keep our energy up doesn’t just happen. They require attention and intention. We’re deeply appreciative of your support as we refill our reservoirs.

Thank you for being a part of our community and fortifying us for not just today, but the many tomorrows ahead. We hope you feed and sustain your well-being in the weeks to come.

Wishing you a safe and joy-filled summer,
The NTC Team

A Reflection on the Year

As we turn the page on 2022, I’m so grateful for the determined and dedicated group of changemakers we partner with both within NTC and across the nation. In my early tenure at NTC, I am heartened and guided by the compassion and wisdom of our staff, partners, supporters, and others leading this movement. You are the heart of our community, and our collective work is an example of the sustained equity practice we must all engage in in service to our young people.
