ETM Student 2

Program Overview

The primary objective of the Teaching Man program is to prepare males majoring in education at USC Upstate to become strong teachers/leaders. This objective is accomplished by program participants matriculating through a leadership curriculum and a mentoring component. At the conclusion of the program, student participants serve as mentors to minority high school students in the local community.  


Leadership Curriculum
The leadership curriculum will expose participants to the current leadership trends and issues significant to future teachers/leaders. Program participants will be required to read a series of leadership articles and provide a comprehensive response that is shared with other program participants. In addition, workshops focusing on leadership are also offered.

The Mentoring Component
Each student participant is assigned an academic, personal and social mentor. The mentor exists to provide the participant with informal insights of the profession from a seasoned practitioner.
