Facilitated Strategy Session

Project Details

What We Need
  • Expert third party advice on process or managerial changes, geographic or programmatic expansion, potential pivots, or general strategic planning
  • Facilitation of an intensive, one-day strategic planning session with staff and/or Board
  • Note: If necessary, a follow-up strategic planning session may be scheduled
Additional Details

Ideally, we'd like the team to walk away with a 3-year strategic plan, although a 1-year plan my be sufficient. If a full plan cannot be completed in this time, we'd like to have a strong framework that we could build on independently.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a budget and a 5-year organizational chart plan, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have early data from our pilot program, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,465 , allowing us to pay four mentor stipends and redirect our time to implementing programs instead of planning.

As we shift to the launch phase, we are in a place of organizational growth. Given our early success, we see many paths to growth, but we want to make sure that we make the most effective, efficient, and sustainable moves to fulfill our mission.

Our long-term goal is to operate a national fellowship program for aspiring Black male educators and this project can help us make the right decisions in the short- and medium terms to reach the ultimate goal.

Our Mission

He is Me Institute is an education equity nonprofit organization that empowers Black men to obtain and retain careers in education.

What We Do

We work to stop the trend of Black household wealth falling to $0 by 2053-- and we do it through education.

We create and fill the pipeline for Black men to become teachers with profound social-emotional awareness. Research shows that Black male teachers already have a positive impact on student achievement, and an even bigger impact on Black boys, including increased wealth in adulthood.

Our programs give opportunities for Black male college students to mentor boys of color, engage in social-emotional learning, and develop perspectives on education equity. The goal is that they matriculate into our partner teacher residency programs to jumpstart their long-term careers in teaching.

Our vision is that our nation's schools have more Black male educators, so that they can expand the impact that many Black male teachers have, thus reversing the trend of Black household wealth.
