About the Executive Leadership Council
The Executive Leadership Council (ELC) is composed of emerging business leaders who bring together the next generation of PENCIL supporters to connect students to success. The ELC provides members with hands-on nonprofit board experience as well as the opportunity to contribute strategic and programmatic insight to PENCIL. ELC members strengthen the organization by connecting PENCIL to new partners and supporters, serving as leaders on targeted fundraising and awareness projects, and personally contributing to the organization. ELC members lead the way in galvanizing PENCIL supporters and volunteers and help to shine a light on our essential programs.
PENCIL is a New York City-based nonprofit making it easy for business professionals, educators and students to work together—in schools and the workplace. Our hands-on programs, including in-school partnerships, mentoring, internships, and immersive experiences like Principal for a Day®, create targeted opportunities to make a real difference in the classroom and beyond. New York City schools are filled with students who have potential and ambition to go far and we envision a city filled with students whose opportunities match their ambitions. Since 1995, PENCIL has played a critical role in bringing together partners, educators and students to open eyes, open minds, and open doors. By doing so, we connect students to success.
