Who We Are
Our mission is to provide opportunities and examples for underserved, marginalized student populations through the inspiration and incentivization of men of color that choose careers within education.
We believe that with the right tools anyone can embrace who they are, define their future, and can change the world.
What We Do
As Brothers Empowered to Teach Initiative (BE2T), we have created a program that will allow men & women of color to explore careers in education by utilizing a formula that tackles the two key factors that keep black men from such a path. As much as 33% of college-bound black men will drop out by sophomore year. Of those who go on to graduate, many are not considering the teaching programs available to them, as they do not resonate with them and do not give enough time to sufficiently prepare culturally competent and content-strong educators. We have to concurrently attach them to school, working with kids, and train them to be incredible teachers.
