BE2T RECEIVED THE 2023 Jrue & Lauren Holiday Grant

Brothers Empowered to Teach has was selected as a Jrue & Lauren Social Impact Fund grantee! It’s been our mission to develop great black male educators. Thanks to the JLH Fund we will make huge strides towards accomplishing our goal.


In July of 2020, New Orleans Pelicans player, Jrue Holiday, and his wife Lauren boldly pledged the remainder of Jrue’s 2020 NBA salary as a progressive step toward combating systemic racism and socioeconomic inequality that continues to prevent Black communities from upward mobility.

Jrue and Lauren Holiday have since continued to support local, Black-led non-profit organizations, city-wide initiatives that seek to bring about equitable outcomes for Black and Brown communities, and historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) of higher education in New Orleans, the Los Angeles area, and Indianapolis.


Jrue and Lauren chose to focus the majority of their support on the four cities they have personal and heartfelt connections to—Los Angeles, Indianapolis, New Orleans and Milwaukee.

Thank you, to the JLH Fund, for selecting BE2T as a 2023 JLH Social Impact Fund Grantee.
