Men of Color Mentoring


The Men of Color Mentoring Program

The Men of Color (MOC) Mentoring Program is facilitated by the Black Collegians and Adelante Programs.  Through the MOC Mentoring Program, SMC male students who mentor JAMS middle school students are mentored by full-time SMC faculty/staff.  Participants attend a group dinner at the beginning of each semester and an end of the semester celebration with all the mentors and mentees in the program.  In addition, the pairs are responsible for meeting one-to-one twice during the semester.  There are a total of 4 required meetings (2 group & 2 one-to-one) during each fall and spring semester.
