Teachers as Leaders: Phase 1- New York City

Commitment by

Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation

In 2007, the Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation committed $1 million to create Teachers as Leaders (TAL), a collaborative effort with the Brooklyn College School of Education and the Schott Foundation for Public Education to address the under-representation of African American males in the NYC Public School teaching force by helping them to succeed academically and ultimately serve as academic role models for all students. TAL provides scholarships and structured supports such as academic and professional advisement, field placements, and mentoring to students who commit to teaching for a minimum of two years in NYC public schools.
