The mission of Profound Gentlemen is to build a community of male educators of color who provide a profound additional impact for boys of color. Our vision is to retain educators who dismantle the cradle to prison pipeline by creating a cradle to career pipeline of boys of color. 

Moving Forward

– Retain 90% of Gentlemen in the field of education

– 90% of Boys of Color in our Gentlemen’s mentoring groups will graduate from high school
