WHO ARE WE
The Building Our Network of Diversity (BOND) Project is an initiative committed to advancing efforts to recruit, develop, support, and retain male educators of color. We also seek to build upon the brilliance of our boys.
The BOND Learning and Leadership Institute for Boys is an enrichment opportunity for male students (Grades 4-12) in Montgomery County Public Schools. This experience will develop and advance students’ leadership skills as well as their personal awareness as academic and social emotional learners.
Due to the scarcity of men of color in education, this is a unique opportunity for male centered teaching and learning for our male students. Our theory of action is that if male educators provide a space for learning and leading, then education will become more accessible, engaging, and ultimately elevated as a viable career option for our male students.
