MISSION AND VISION
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 dismantle the cradle to prison pipeline by creating a cradle to career pipeline of highly effective leaders, educators, role models, and advocates.
In 2015-16, Profound Gentlemen attracted over 150 male educators of color and retained 90% of them into the education profession. Together, our Gentlemen impacted approximately 3,000 boys of color through mentoring groups.
This year, our goals are:
– 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
– 90% of Boys of Color in our Gentlemen’s mentoring groups will be exposed to and experience diverse career backgrounds
