What We Do
Our mission is to a build community of male educators of color who provide a profound additional impact on boys of color.
Our vision is to retain educators who dismantle the cradle to prison pipeline by establishing a cradle to career pipeline for boys of color.
Currently, 2 states across the nation have a high school graduation rate of 80% for boys of color. Study’s show that when boys of color have male educators of color, they are more likely to graduate from high school, experience increase self-esteem, and have greater chances of pursuing a four-year college degree. Unfortunately, only 2% of teachers in public schools are men of color. Although there are efforts to recruit men of color into education, schools and districts struggle more with retaining men of color than recruiting. Currently, 65% of male educators of color stay in the education profession after three years.
