Toros Teach LA

CSUDH’s Toros Teach LA is an innovative program that addresses the severe shortage of early childhood educators by preparing, graduating, and placing culturally competent, racially diverse teachers and leaders in schools across the LA region.

The program comprises the Early Childhood Excellence and Black Educator Excellence initiatives, through which we build equity-embedded credentials, improve graduation rates of underrepresented students in teacher credential programs, and enable educators to forge successful teaching careers with less debt and high career retention.
