The mission of The Black Montessori Education Fund (BMEF) is to increase engagement and support positive experiences of Black children and adults in Montessori education.
The BMEF seeks to bridge the gap in the awareness and understanding of Montessori educational principles and practice while at the same time creating a pipeline of highly trained Black Montessori teachers and school leaders who are focused on providing high quality, culturally responsive Montessori environments to Black children. In addition, the BMEF seeks to support Black Montessorians desirous of opening their own schools or becoming Montessori teacher trainers. Lastly, the BMEF will encourage and support Black families in their efforts to understand and gain access to Montessori education for their children.
VMA supports the mission of BMEF and would like to contribute
to its future success.
