Program Initiated

The M.E.N.S. Program was created in response to the need of the male students at Trident Technical College.  As a part of the duties of the newly created Director of Mentoring position, this program seeks to help with the President's and college's goals of retention of male students.

Program Funded

This program is funded by the Division of Academic Affairs and Student Services.

College President and Administrators Involvement

The President and other college administrators are very supportive of the programs and initiatives of the M.E.N.S. program and are actively present at programs and meetings as their schedules permit.

Program Success Story

The people I met through the male mentoring program really made a difference in my life.  As a first generation college student, they helped me learn how to survive in a new environment.  They also helped me to realize what manhood was all about in terms of education and employment. I am glad that they were there to help me figure things out.
