Jahi is an educational consultant specializing in professional development for organizations, teachers and school districts. As the former Program Manager of African American Male Achievement/Oakland Unified School District from 2011 to 2019, Jahi was instrumental in recruiting, training and retaining 20 African American Male Teachers, building a 90% retention rate, developing the Asset Based Model that is now being used nationally, and helped to serve 800 students and 3000 families while managing up to 20 schools.
