"Education must focus on personalized learning and advocacy, so students are empowered with the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully reach their goals."
TANK EdDucates LLC is dedicated to culturally responsive pedagogy and life skills education, specifically targeting disadvantaged populations. Our organization utilizes a student-centered approach to teaching, training, and mentoring which identifies individuals' cultural strengths to promote cultural education, learning engagement, and outcomes. We support school districts, faculty, colleges/universities, government agencies, community stakeholders, and organizations.
The organization was founded by Dr. Emmanuel Cherilien, an Education Specialist with over 20 years of experience in the field of education and leadership. Dr. Cherilien also known as "Dr. Tank" currently serves on the Board of Directors for Catholic Partnership Schools. He is a motivational speaker, professor, and director of the T.A.N.K Mentoring Program for the State of New Jersey, assisting ex-offenders with re-entry success. He brings extensive expertise in a broad range of subjects including business administration, criminal justice, education, sociology, philosophy, and history. Dr. Cherilien’s research on college access inspired the formation of TANK EdDucates LLC.
"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today."
