Education Leaders of Color

Reports to the Director, Network Culture and Engagement. Priority application deadline: January 3, 2022

About EdLoC

EdLoC’s mission is to ensure young people of color have the supports needed to thrive, capitalize on opportunities, and build generational wealth.

We do so by ensuring that young people of color from low-income communities have access to wealth-building opportunities that enable them to break the cycle that impedes their and their families’ economic prosperity over time. According to researchers from UC Davis’s Center for Poverty and Inequality, “One-third to one-half of children who are poor for a substantial part of their childhood will be poor as adults,” making intergenerational mobility in the United States lower than in any other developed nation in the world. EdLoC aspires to a day when living in poverty does not determine the fate of your family, generation after generation.

EdLoC’s belief is that by building a network of values-aligned leaders of color and forging a third way, we can pursue the most innovative, effective, life-altering, and rapid solutions to positively impact young people of color’s access to social capital. Capital that will eventually allow them to build legacy, or intergenerational, wealth.
