The crisis for young men of color is immense and urgent. Educators and school leaders across the country have approached EAF to learn about and adapt its proven model. Eagle has the experience to build the capacity of educators and school leaders. Over the past four years, EAF led annual professional development conferences serving up to 600 educators and school leaders.
The Eagle Institute will support the development of school leaders and educators to improve the life outcomes of boys of color by:
•Training school leaders, educators and student teachers on the Eagle model, which will better equip them to work with male students of color
•Providing in-depth strategic consultation and implementation support to schools nationwide in order to deliver the Eagle model
In its first three years, the Eagle Institute will serve 3,000 educators and impact over 150,000 students.
The Eagle Institute’s Impact
Eagle Academy Foundation seeks to improve the academic and life trajectories of young men of color by broadening the reach of its proven model nationwide.
- The Eagle Institute will increase the number of schools nationwide with positive cultures and interventions intended to support the academic achievement and socio-emotional flourishing of black and Latino male students.
- The Eagle Institute will significantly enhance the capability of school educators to effectively meet the needs of male students of color.
- The Eagle Institute, through strategic partnerships with academia, will be an active lab for producing much needed research and development of effective tactics and programs for engaging and developing high achieving young men of color.
“EAF is a beacon and a blueprint.
A beacon through our Eagle Academies where we have shining examples of the young men we help.
A blueprint in our ability to show others how to do the same. The Eagle Institute is that blueprint.”
