Event description
Join NYCMT as we commemorate a Demi-decade in existence, and the larger impact of our program on the field of 21st century urban education.

About this event

FROM A MOMENT TO A MOVEMENT ! In 2015, Mayor Bill de Blasio launched NYC Men Teach, the nation’s boldest effort to diversify the teaching pipeline through recruiting and retaining male teachers of color in NYC schools. Led by the Office of the Mayor’s Young Men’s Initiative (YMI), NYC Men Teach has taken on the charge to diversify the teaching profession, and prepare 21st century teachers equipped to teach in urban schools.

Join us for our 5th annual Showcase event.

From a Moment to a Movement: A gathering of current and prospective teachers, administrators, and school staff that highlights the work of the program and its partners. Through exciting workshops, speakers, panel discussions, and opportunities to network and fellowship, the NYC Men Teach Showcase will promote the people, practices, and policies that comprise the largest recruitment and support initiative for male teachers of color in the country.

This years showcase is a two-day event:

NYCMT pre-showcase(6/16/21): From 4pm-6:30pm, A conversation featuring Dr Ibram Kendi and other guests on taking anti-racist pedagogy from theory to practice, and the social implications underlying the need for men of color in the field of education. The conversation with Dr. Kendi will be followed by a conversation with other prominent political and educational figures on the research and policy surrounding male educators of color, and their recruitment and retention into educational systems.

NYCMT Showcase(6/17/21): From 11am-2:30pm, featuring music, performances, breakout sessions, and our revolutionary guest speaker for this year's showcase, Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings.

Organizer of NYCMT 5th Annual Showcase...A Moment to a Movement: Changing the Landscape!

NYC MEN TEACH is dedicated to uniting men of color committed to educating today’s diverse student population, engaging in each other’s professional and leadership development, and empowering the communities they serve.


We believe that a well-supported educator results in a better learning experience for all students. This outreach and recruitment strategy provides support aimed at keeping teachers of color in schools as well as supporting their career growth by way of leadership opportunities. Right now, we are building out our Principals and Mentor Networks, and seeking counsel on culturally-relevant professional and leadership workshops, and identifying unique opportunities for participants to change the education landscape. 


NYC MEN TEACH is not only about students.  We are also invested in YOU!
