Domonick Fields

Program Director

We are excited to announce that Domonick Fields joined Black Men Teach on July 14 as the Program Director. Domonick has a strong background in public, private, charter school and community organization leadership. “Domonick’s extensive experience makes him a perfect fit for this new position,” says BMT Executive Director Markus Flynn. “He has the academic training and hands-on leadership in youth development, advising, project management, and serving youth in a variety of organizations that BMT needs at this time in its history. We are honored to have him join our team.” The program director position is responsible for building partnerships with secondary and post-secondary education leaders, recruiting high school and college fellows, training program coordinators, overseeing curriculum implementation, and managing social media engagement. “Black Men Teach is so critically important in overcoming the shortage of Black teachers and role models in elementary schools,” says Domonick. “I am committed to helping achieve BMT’s mission using my training and experience serving underrepresented communities.” Prior to joining BMT, Domonick served as alumni counselor at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, Minneapolis; academic advisor for Trio Upward Bound, Brooklyn Park; and family achievement coach for Northside Achievement Zone, Minneapolis. While pursuing his master’s degree, he held positions as academic advisor for Trio Educational Talent Search, program coordinator for The Sanneh Foundation, an AmeriCorps fellow with Twin Cities Rise, and teen center director of the Boys and Girls Club of St. Paul. Domonick holds a B.A. Degree in sociology and anthropology from St. Olaf College and a Master’s Degree in educational leadership from St. Mary’s University.
