What We Do
PrincipalsConnect (PC) is a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supports retired professionals who are willing to share their expertise with urban school principals. We attract professionals with significant business experience who are willing to share their expertise with school principals. Our network of retired professionals can provide help with human resources, legal matters, marketing, fund raising, project management, finance, IT and many other areas. PrincipalsConnect allows retired professionals a flexible, part-time work schedule and gives principals the ability to select PC volunteers when and where they need them.
We believe that retired leaders who are involved with urban schools can be strong advocates for resources and positive changes. The influence of retired leaders will help children in urban schools get a better education and arm them with tools that will help them succeed in life. PC Advisers have the experience, intellect and power to inspire collective action, providing positive change in schools.
How It Works
There is no single program that gives urban school principals access to free professional assistance, when and where they need it. For example, a PC adviser can help create and lead a strategic planning session for the principal and his/her staff, or lend a hand with a principal on annual budget preparation.
PrincipalsConnect connects retired business professionals to urban school principals. Principals get the assistance they want and retirees get the satisfaction of using their skills to help school leaders.
