Highlighting Man the Bay Fellows

We have placed teachers in 8 different Bay Area schools and our 4th cohort of Black male teacher fellows is on track to enter the classroom this year.

We are recruiting for future cohorts of fellows and would love to hear from you.

The most foundational leaders in our communities are teachers.

Less than 2% of America’s teaching force are Black males; less than 3% are Latino males. Yet research shows that the influence of having a Black teacher can make a monumental difference in a Black student’s life.
