Join the PENCIL community of nearly 10,000 individuals who have participated in one of New York City’s most enduring and prestigious opportunities to support public education.
-Learn what it really takes to lead a New York City public school
-Advise principals and administrators on management opportunities and challenges
-Offer students insight into your path to success and opportunities that exist within your industry
Since 1995 more than 1,000 New York City public schools have opened their doors to visiting Principals For A Day. In 2020, educators and executives connected virtually to share insight and knowledge in lieu of in-person visits. Participants are often interested in learning about the ins and outs of daily school leadership or interacting directly with students and teachers. As a school leader, you can participate in a variety of PENCIL’s programs that can highlight your school’s strengths and give your students an opportunity to learn about a new industry or career path. Many of PENCIL’s ongoing school/business partnerships began with a Principal For A Day® experience and we hope our upcoming events can launch many more long standing relationships!
Since 1995, NYC’s social entrepreneurs, business and civic leaders have shown up for PENCIL’s Principal For A Day® as the first step in their commitment to open minds, open eyes, and open doors for tens of thousands of public school students. Will you be next?
Thank you PENCIL, Inc. for the opportunity to create a holding space for school leaders to share how they are leading their schools in the midst of all the tragedies we are experiencing in America, as well as the hopefulness of change permeating all around us.
As a product of public school, it was a thrill participating in the Principal for a Day program. I shadowed faculty, met with every grade and shared my academic journey along with the world of experiential marketing with the class of 2019.
What an amazing experience it was to talk to middle and high school students about their future career paths, technology, business, entrepreneurship, & social media!
