Since 1994, InfoStreet has been dedicated to making our world a better place to live through philanthropic endeavors such as charitable donations, charitable fundraisers, and seasonal toy and food drives. It’s in this spirit that InfoStreet is proud to announce their partnership with the educational leadership and mentorship organization, New Leaders. Starting immediately, a portion of the revenue from cloud apps purchases in the SkyAppMarket will be donated to New Leaders. SkyAppMarket is SkyDesktop’s cloud app marketplace. SkyDesktop is a cloud desktop where users can store, manage, and access all of their files and cloud apps in one location, and with one login.
“I am extremely grateful to InfoStreet for their continued support of New Leaders and, in turn, their support of schools throughout our country,” said Jean Desravines, CEO of New Leaders. “Leadership is a key factor in improving schools so that they better serve students in our highest-need communities. InfoStreet’s support on behalf of countless users helps us ensure we are able to continue to recruit, train and support transformational school leaders.”
New Leaders is an American non-profit organization dedicated to developing transformational school leaders and designing effective leadership policies and practices for school systems across the country. New Leaders focuses on schools in low-income communities to improve the quality of leadership and teaching and to raise student achievement in historically under-performing schools. Thanks to new school policies, practices, and dedicated school leaders, students in New Leader schools consistently achieve at higher levels than their peers. In addition, they have higher high school graduation rates than their peers, and are making more progress in closing the achievement gap.
“New Leaders develops outstanding people who in turn create excellent schools for kids growing up in poverty,” notes Siamak Farah, CEO of InfoStreet. “InfoStreet is proud to partner with New Leaders because they produce a pivotal change in kids’ lives by addressing a root cause: leadership in education.”
Through its partnership with New Leaders, InfoStreet offers its users an opportunity to have a hand in supporting a charity founded on the deep belief that all students deserve success, by simply purchasing the affordable, best-in-class cloud apps from the SkyAppMarket. InfoStreet is excited to be a part of improving the lives of children that benefit from the New Leaders program. Additional information can be found on InfoStreet’s website.
