Our Mission:
The mission of the Black Parents Forum is to help families learn more about private school admissions and education. It includes empowering families, students and candidates with information on how to apply and succeed in these environments. It is for every family interested in exploring options in private school education, pre-k through 12th grade and beyond.  

Young Horizons Indigo,the news source for parents and teachers interested in private school education, now sponsors two major forums/fairs per year:

Teacher of Color Recruitment Fairs 
Free workshops and recruitment fairs for candidates interested in learning more about the benefits of teaching at private schools (ww.teacherofcolor.info). Candidate's resumes are circulated to registered schools at no charge to candidates.  TOC is an outgrowth of the Black Parents Forums & Fairs as a means of exposing teaching candidates to the possibility of teaching at private (independent) schools, while encouraging schools to consider more teachers of color.  Since its start in 2007 services have grown to include information sharing, educational resources sharing, educational consulting, teacher recruitment, forums and more.  In 2016 the TOC celebrates its 9th year serving schools and teaching candidates.
