Star Taylor

Program Manager

As Program Manager of the Neubauer Fellowship in Educational Leadership, Star leads aspects of content design and program implementation, as well as communication of School Leaders’ programs and their impact.
Prior to joining School Leaders, Star was a Senior Impact Manager with City Year Philadelphia where she developed and managed partnerships with school administrators to ensure the implementation of City Year’s attendance, behavior and course performance interventions for students. She managed and coached teams of AmeriCorps members to serve and support scholars while developing their leadership potential.

It was through her hands-on experiences with young people, students, teachers, and administrators that Star witnessed the power of transformational leaders. She worked at S. Weir Mitchell Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, Avery D. Harrington Elementary, and other schools, aiming to increase student outcomes and dismantle barriers that keep our scholars from receiving quality education. During her time at City Year, Star was designated as the Site Equity Point where she created social justice trainings and reports for educators and led implementation of the organization’s equity learning and practice.

Star is a graduate from the University of Maryland, where she earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degree.
