Building Educator Pipelines Through Service

The National Partnership for Student Success (NPSS) is a coordinated, research-based, all-in effort to help all students recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and thrive. Led by the U.S. Department of Education, AmeriCorps, and the Everyone Graduates Center at the Johns Hopkins School of Education, the NPSS will encompass a nationwide three-year effort to bring together committed, high-quality education and service organizations to recruit, screen, train, support, and engage an additional 250,000 Americans serving as academic tutors, high-quality mentors, student success coaches, wraparound/integrated student support coordinators, and/or post-secondary transition coaches for students. These adults will work side-by-side with educators and other personnel in and out of school settings in roles that research shows result in gains in reading and math, high school and college graduation rates, reductions in chronic absenteeism, and improved student well-being and mental health.

The NPSS has built a coalition of over 120 supporting champions, including government agencies, national service organizations, youth development organizations, and national associations representing educators, schools, districts, and youth-serving organizations.

Supporting & Building Educator Pipelines:

By recruiting and supporting additional talent in education and public service, the NPSS will help to address critical challenges in the educator pipeline, which the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated. The NPSS will strengthen the future educator pipeline as one of several strategies to:


  • Increase the number of adults entering the pipeline who are committed to serving students.
  • Ensure that staff in schools reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.
  • Provide more novice professionals with experience working in school settings and other youth-serving environments to better prepare them for entry into educator preparation programs, the teaching profession, and other careers in education and youth work.
