NYC Men Teach Home

NYC MEN TEACH was created to improve the diversity of the NYC teaching workforce. This initiative is a partnership between the mayor's office, CUNY, the New York City Department of Education (DOE), and New York City’s “Young Men’s Initiative” (YMI).

This initiative aims to address the large gap between the diversity in the NYC student population and the teacher population, especially among minority male teachers. Reports by the New York Department of Education have revealed that while 45% of students are males of color, only 7% of the teachers are men of color. NYC MEN TEACH seeks to address this by putting an additional 1,000 minority males on course to be teachers in NYC Public schools, over the next three years.

Hunter College’s School of Education has a proud tradition of producing strong teacher and school leaders in public schools in NYC and across the nation.  The NYC MEN TEACH initiative will continue this tradition by providing academic and financial support to teacher candidates.  This initiative will also offer workshops, social events, certification preparation, career planning, and networking opportunities, to ensure students successfully become teachers.  Please visit the program resources for more information.
