Are you already a classroom teacher or education professional (administrator, graduate student, etc.) and want to know how you can contribute to the efforts of NYC Men Teach? Apply to become a Mentor or Ambassador to a group of incoming first-year NYC Men Teach Anchors.
As a NYC Men Teach Mentor, you will provide support to a group of Anchors throughout the school year. You will also be part of a Mentor Peer Group who will meet monthly to discuss mentoring strategies, challenges, and opportunities for growth. The commitment is meeting twice a month with your Anchors (once in person, and once virtually) and once a month with your peer group throughout the school year. You are also encouraged to attend a variety of Professional Development programs, social events, and community programs with your Anchors. If you are already a teacher at a DOE public school, you are eligible to be paid on a per-session basis for the meetings with your Anchors and Mentor Peer Group. If you are not teaching at a DOE school, you would be a Mentor volunteer.
As a NYC Men Teach Ambassador, you will provide guidance to first-year Anchor teachers by offering lessons, workshops, and planning sessions based on your personal expertise whether that’s lesson planning, navigating the DOE, or any variety of topics specific to your skill set. The commitment is four trainings throughout the school year, with the option to do more as opportunities arise. If you are already a teacher at a DOE public school, you are eligible to be paid on a per-session basis for this work. If you are not teaching at a DOE school, you would be an Ambassador volunteer.
