Minority Male Mentoring conference #2

For the last seven years, Cleveland Community College has received a grant from the North Carolina Community College System to assist in increasing graduation and success rates of minority male students each year. CCC established a group called Men Making Moves (M3) to make sure this happens! The goal of students involved with M3 is to enhance the advancement of minority males in our college and community.

Bruce Mack, Dean of Advanced Manufacturing and Public Services and former M3 Coordinator says, "This program has been rewarding on so many levels and not just for the students but also for the folks who have come forward to mentor these young men. It is amazing to watch their transformation when they are given personal support."

In addition, cultural enrichment and college tour activities are provided for students in the M3 program. Recent events include trips to tour four-year university and college campuses around the state as well as attend cultural events at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte. "The cultural aspect of M3 is just as important to our students," says Mack. "Many of them would never be awarded these opportunities without it."
