WHAT IS
MAN THE BAY

Man The Bay

(verb) ~ An effort to recruit, nurture, prepare, and deploy recent college graduates with community based leadership experiences in the San Francisco Bay Area.

True to the origins of Urban Ed Academy, and a keen focus on improving the life outcomes of black boys, Man The Bay aims to recruit these graduates of color, primarily from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to commit to a 4-year journey of purposeful growth, positive influence and excellence.

Fellows from Delaware State and Texas Southern Universities joined our team in July. Through Urban Ed Academy, and the Man The Bay residency initiative, these men will provide leadership through SMART Saturdays, Malcolm X Academy, and other youth focused activities in and around Bayview/Hunter’s Point.
