Educators Rising is a free national membership organization that provides students with authentic opportunities to experience teaching and build the skills they need to be successful educators. As a permanent member of the National Coordinating Council of Career and Technical Student Organizations (NCC-CTSO), Educators Rising offers resources and opportunities that integrate directly into the academic programs of “teacher academy” career and technical education courses at the high-school level.

By joining Educators Rising, those leading or participating in school-based programs that help young people explore teaching — in secondary or postsecondary — are connected to more than 45,000 members across the country. This network includes more than 42,000 rising educators, and 24 states and regions have become official Educators Rising affiliates. We’re actively working to diversify the teaching profession; our student membership is comprised of 51% students of color.

These aspiring educators and their mentors connect and deepen their learning through the EdRising Virtual Campus, a cutting-edge online community that offers rigorous resources to support the development of great teachers. Our many opportunities for students and teachers range from national competitions that allow rising educators to demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and leadership in education to a customizable curriculum* that fits any teacher leader’s needs.
