The Tom Joyner Foundation Teacher Quality Initiative



The Tom Joyner Teacher Quality Initiative (TQI) is a partnership with HBCUs and other local colleges to help remove the barriers from individuals trying to get their teaching certification. TQI provides community college students who desire to become teachers with a rewarding opportunity to help fulfill their dream of becoming an educator.

The Teacher Quality Initiative program will cover seven semesters of tuition and fees and allows the student to attend Huston Tillotson University to obtain their bachelor degrees. Upon finishing required coursework, students are provided with mentorship, internship opportunities and job placement.
