Profound Gentlemen builds a cradle-to-career pipeline of male educators of color who provide a profound additional impact on boys of color through social-emotional learning, mentoring, and serving as role models. PG’s vision is for boys to have mirrors of success in the classroom through male educators of color. Co-founded by Jason Terrell, a 2012 Furman University Political Science and Philosophy graduate, Profound Gentlemen was presented with the $20,000 grand prize at Charlotte-based Social Venture Partner’s SEED20 event.
