About Us

Mission: Our mission is to build communities of male educators of color who offer a profound additional impact on boys of color.

Vision: Our vision is to retain education leaders who dismantle the cradle to prison pipeline by establishing a cradle to career pipeline for boys of color.

Strategy: Our strategy is to utilize trained, seasoned male educators of color who serve as peer mentors for our Gentlemen called Impact Leaders. Impact Leaders guide Gentlemen on a professional development track to build their impact and leadership.
