The Solution

Black Men Teach addresses all of the challenges faced by black male teacher candidates;

  • Recruitment
  • Training options and cost
  • Induction
  • School culture
  • Meaningful career paths
  • Adequate compensation

From recruitment, to helping select the appropriate training program, to securing resources to assist in paying for that training, to placement in schools that have strong induction programs, career growth opportunities and supportive cultures, Black Men Teach supports the growth of black male educators in Twin Cities schools.  From the moment a man indicates that he wants to be a teacher, we will help him navigate the process and show him a pathway to success.

Our goal is to create the conditions where black men thrive in education.
