Brothers Empowered 2 Teach
Brothers Empowered to Teach’s (BE2T) mission is to recruit & mentor men of color into classroom-based careers in order to generate a pipeline of incredible teachers who mirror success for their students.
BE2T innovates on teacher recruitment by starting early in college to expose them to education careers in discreet intervals via three components. Specifically tailored for full-time college students, participants are eligible to begin sophomore year for a 3-year fellowship. The undergraduate fellowship is intentionally designed with schedule flexibility to attract upperclassmen that are actively looking for opportunities in the classroom as well. Features include a paid work study to tutor afterschool children, personal and professional development through our “Cipher” workshop series and one-on-one pairing with a veteran male educator for support in and out of the classroom. Stipends are tiered. Year 1 participants receive $2,500; Year 2 - $3000 and Year 3 - $3500. Students who successfully complete the program will receive up to $2,000 toward teacher certification.

The Change Track
Specifically for men of color who may have already had a career in another profession, older students returning to school, and /or looking to change from their current career to education. Change Track fellows participate in our “Cipher” workshop series and upon entering the classroom, will be supported with a one-on-one pairing with a male educator and will also have the opportunity to mentor school age students.
