Future Minority Male Teachers of California

Summer Bridge Program Lecture Videos

The F2MTC Summer Bridge Program was a week-long program from June 25-29, that showed students how to use hip hop, the arts, social justice and other powerful tools for teaching. Four inspirational lectures were professionally recorded, edited, and close captioned.

What is F2MTC?

The goal of the F2MTC project is to improve the pipeline for male teachers of color throughout the California State University system so that elementary age students of color will have increased numbers of males of color serving as teachers, mentors and role models, thereby helping to close the persistent achievement gap between white students and students of color.

How can F2MTC help you become a teacher?

  • A supportive network of other male teachers.
  • Male Mentor teachers who help you understand the benefits and challenges of being a teacher and support you through your preparation 
  • Support scholarships and enrollment assistance.
  • Summer MENTOR Program with hands-on teaching and learning opportunities


The F2MTC project now has 15 scholarships of up to $3,000.00 each available for male minority teacher candidates.
