Keywords:partnerships, diversity, preservice teachers, teacher workforce, hope
AbstractThis article features the creation of processes for developing a sustainable and viable recruitment andÂ retention effort to diversify the teacher workforce between a school district and institution of higher education.Â The three-year journey of program development has resulted in numerous successes and powerfulÂ opportunities for aspiring educators and authentic learning for the partners. Data was collected from students-of-color focus groups and a network of Black male education professionals and informed an aspiring student group to consider teaching and education as a career choice. Researchers used the Community ofÂ Cultural Wealth framework as a guide to develop the program and categorize data. Team members reportedÂ data and used the findings for continued revisions and expansion of the program.
