TandemED is a finalist for the 2014 Echoing Green Black Male Achievement Fellowship!

Mission TandemEd’s mission is to unite African-American communities around leading the educational development of youth, strengthening them to become purpose-filled, motivated, and self-directed adults.

Vision TandemED envisions economically competitive, vibrant African-American communities with a unified narrative about their rich history, present opportunity, and sustainability into the future.

What We Do TandemED supports local communities to self-design and deliver educational content that will instill youth with purpose and motivation as they engage in learning in public schools. 

Through interactions everywhere in the community and a surround-sound print and online media campaign, youth will learn about their cultural and historical narratives and community-defined purposes for learning. 

Finally, we set up Tandem Learning Hubs--physical and online spaces where youth learn the community-designed educational content and pursue self-directed entrepreneurial and academic ventures with the mentorship of community members. 



Note: We are still a growing organization in the process of determining a fiscal agent. Though we are not able to offer tax exemption for donations, we can guarantee your donation will make an immense impact on communities and youth!
