The African American Male Student Success Team is a mentoring program whose mission is to support and retain African American male students in their efforts toward graduation, certificate completion, and/or university transfer. Its long term goal is to be a resource and support in addressing the educational disparity that exists in our community. Through mentoring and specially-designed activities and events, the African American Male Student Success Team helps young men to understand the benefits of a college education. It gives students a chance to help others through service projects and shows that education and giving back are essential to success.
TCC has focused on African American male students because they have been identified as the college subgroup with the greatest disparity in success. Progress for promoting academic success among this group is evident for students participating in the African American Male Student Success Team. TCC is now investigating ways to expand this successful mentoring program to reach more African American male students.
