Black Minds Leadership Program

The Black Minds Leadership Program, as the leadership development arm of BMEA, focuses on intergenerational mentoring to foster confident and skilled individuals while creating a pipeline for Black males in the teaching profession. The program utilizes high school mentors to engage elementary-aged students, aiming to improve math proficiency and develop emerging young Black male leaders by fostering productive struggle, productive talk, and cultivating mindsets.

  • The Black Minds Leadership Program nurtures Black male identity and fosters a community of learners supporting each other’s growth.
  • High school mentors play a crucial role in engaging elementary-aged students, creating positive Black male role models in teaching.
  • The program operates both during and after school hours, proactively supporting young leaders in their learning and fostering community building and skill cultivation.
