Behind the Scenes of
Urban Ed Academy
Urban Ed Academy was founded as part of a strategy to inspire excitement for learning in young boys of color by matching them with mentors who looked like them. We believe every child deserves to see themselves in the classroom. Since 2018, Urban Ed Academy has been investing in solutions to help expand the representation of Black and Brown teachers in classrooms.
We haven’t been alone. Our success has been made possible because of the hard work of our talented team of volunteers and champions. Our leadership team works closely with each of our volunteers to make their experience one they can grow from, and we are always looking to expand the team.
You can apply for any of these positions using the volunteer application on this page.
