KEEPING MALES OF COLOR IN EDUCATION
Our mission is to build a community of male educators of color who provide a profound additional impact on boys of color. We develop, support and retain highly effective male teachers of color across the nation to positively affect the academic achievement of all children in traditional public and charter schools, with particular attention to the achievement of boys of color.
We are committed to retaining male educators of color who establish cradle-to-career pipelines and are education leaders in their community.
How We Retain Male Educators of Color
Profound Gentlemen (PG) provides male educators of color with 1:1 coaching, professional development opportunities, and access to a large network of mission-driven educators.
We implement a targeted approach to support the unique development needs of our educators based on their years in the profession:
Beginning Educators (0-3 years)
Developing Educators (4-6 years)
Profound Educators (7+ years)
We place each PG Educator in a collaborative cohort with approximately 20 other educators where they undergo a series of sessions on topics that focus on the following areas: Character Development, Content Development, and Continuous Leadership.
