MISSION AND VISION
Our Mission is to build a community of male educators of color who provide a profound additional impact on boys of color. Our Vision is to dismantle the cradle to prison pipeline by creating a cradle to career pipeline for boys of color of highly effective leaders, educators, advocates, and mentors.
Highly effective educators are the single ingredient most likely to impact student achievement. Numerous studies in the last few decades have shown that good educators are what make good schools and communities. However, there is more to developing great teachers, especially for boys of color, than training educators on research-based strategies and techniques. Who the educators are and their skills with particular populations of students matter to their success in raising student achievement.
Profound Gentlemen makes sure that all students especially, boys of color have highly impactful male educators of color throughout their K-12 experience.
