- NYC Men Teach
In a city where the majority of the 8.4 million inhabitants are people of color, it is important that such diversity is reflected in New York City classrooms. Diverse cultures, perspectives, and realities are the backbone of our great City and inform every aspect of our daily lives. Yet, far too many young men of color will never see someone who looks like them at the chalkboard. If we are going to be serious about addressing inequity, diverse teachers must be a part of the overall strategy. York College has partnered with the Young Men’s Initiative, to unite Black, Latino and Asian men committed to educating today’s diverse student population; supporting each other’s professional and leadership development; and empowering the communities they serve.
