Urban Ed Academy is committed to developing a data-driven, multi-level approach to motivate, recruit, train, and support Black men into the teaching profession.
Man the Bay fellows receive:
- culturally-responsive training
- mentors of color
- and personalized coaching and guidance preparing them to serve San Francisco students.
Behind the scenes, Urban Ed Academy also works to ensure that fellows are housed by Black homeowners, providing new income sources in rapidly gentrifying Black communities across the Bay Area. Fellows also give their time to Urban Ed Academy’s community programs where they continue building relationships with San Francisco’s Black students, family and communities.
