Who We Are

NYC Men Teach is the nation’s boldest effort to diversify the teaching pipeline by recruiting and supporting more men of color to become teachers in New York City schools. A collaboration between the Office of the Mayor’s Young Men’s Initiative (YMI), NYC Department of Education, and the City University of New York, NYC Men Teach will bring more diverse cultures and perspectives into our classrooms by increasing the number of male educators of color in schools. As an initiative, NYC Men Teach assists interested candidates in finding the pathway to certification that is best for them, in addition to providing hiring, mentoring, professional development, and leadership support and opportunities.

Upcoming Events

As an initiative, NYC Men Teach hosts numerous events focused on increasing awareness about the initiative, its work, building community and continuing professional learning among pre-service and in-service educators, and several community-wide and public-facing events throughout the year.
