Black Men Teach celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

Black Men Teach announces our partnership with General Mills’ Box Tops for Education program by surprising Mr. Thetis White with a $50,000 check for his student loan debt during teacher appreciation week! See his reaction in the video below.

One of the key strategies for Black Men Teach is making teaching a more accessible profession to Black men by alleviating some of their financial burdens. We are tackling this challenge by providing scholarships and debt relief for men in our fellowship program. Help us diversify Minnesota’s teaching pool by donating now.

Black boys with a Black male teacher are 29% less likely to drop out of school years later (this number is 39% for very low income Black students).
