SAN ANTONIO - July 25, 2018 - PRLog -- My Brother's Keeper - San Antonio, in collaboration with Texas State Representative Barbara Gervin-Hawkins and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas, will announce the MBKSA Education Partnership Scholarship initiative to encourage more African-American, Latino and other men of color to become teachers in the San Antonio area.  The MBKSA Education Partnership Scholarship will enable men of color, especially former college athletes, who may be un- or underemployed to pivot into careers in education to include teaching and student counseling.

The MBKSA Education Partnership provides a valuable resource to an underrepresented workforce. African-American and Latino men each account for roughly 2 percent of the K-12 workforce overall as reported by the Urban Institute in a 2017 independent study.  Across the country school district human resource offices are trying to figure out how to introduce more African-American and Latino men to positions in the classroom. Schools want faculties to represent the diverse populations students will come in contact with post graduation.  The same study shows that students internalize the assumption that immutable characteristics of race are a barrier to professional success.

On Friday, July 27th at 10am Representative Gervin-Hawkins, representatives from My Brother's Keeper San Antonio and, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas will share more about the resource grant, the application process, and what the first cohort should expect.

Media, community leaders, and interested applicants are encouraged to attend.

Where: Sam Houston High School, 4635 E. Houston, San Antonio, TX 78220
