Program Initiated

During the 2003-2005 fiscal years, the North Carolina Governor’s Crime Commission funded a Minority Male Mentoring Program on the campuses of six state community colleges.  In 2007 the General Assembly funded 15 new programs state wide, and through a competitive process 17 additional programs were implemented in 2008.  The purpose of the Minority Male Mentoring project is to increase graduation and retention rates among minority males in the North Carolina Community College System.

Program Funded

The program is now funded their private donations and fund raisers.

College President and Administrators Involvement
