Teach for America and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Announces Formal Partnership to Recruit More African American Male Leaders to Classroom

Teach For America and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. announced formal partnership created to recruit more African American male leaders to the classroom. The partnership will highlight Teach For America as one opportunity for more Alpha Phi Alpha members to work in the nation's highest-need communities and form a lasting commitment to pursuing educational equity. Teach For America works in partnership with communities to expand educational opportunity for children facing the challenges of poverty by recruiting and developing a diverse corps of outstanding college graduates and professionals to make an initial two-year commitment to teach in high-need schools and become lifelong leaders in the effort to end educational inequity. Alpha Phi Alpha's mission includes leadership development, academic excellence, service, and advocacy all areas that align with Teach For America's core values and mission. Last fall, for the first time in the nation's history, students of color represented the majority of students in public school classrooms but the teaching profession has yet to catch up. Just 2% of its nation's teachers identify as African American males, compared with 16% of African American students. Though Teach For America has seen its most effective teachers come from all backgrounds, those who share their students' backgrounds can also serve as powerful role models. The Teach For America Alpha Phi Alpha partnership will help to attract more African American male teachers to the classroom, increasing the number of students of color whose teachers share their backgrounds and who can serve as vital role models.
