Building a pipeline of Black male educators

by The 100 Companies

Less than 3% of teachers in the classroom are Black men. So, when Larry Irvin Jr. founded Brothers Empowered to Teach (BE2T) in 2014, he envisioned a world in which the demographics of educators reflect those of the students they serve.

BE2T is generating a pipeline of teachers by preparing Black men for classroom-based careers through early exposure to teaching and mentorship.

We have three approaches to achieving our mission: a three-year Pre-Teaching Fellowship for college students, a one-year Change Track program for graduates and career changers, and efforts to change policy and practice through engagement with stakeholders and policymakers.

– Donnell K. Bailey, Brothers Empowered to Teach, New Orleans Chamber Partner
