Men of Color Mentorship Program

TMCC's Men of Color Mentorship Program (MOC) aims to motivate underrepresented high school sophomores and juniors to attend college. Men of Color Logo

Program Goals

The goal of MOC is to educate students and their families about different career paths and college opportunities. Students will be provided with a mentor who will assist the mentee from their sophomore or junior year in high school up until their successful matriculation to college.

MOC currently recruits 10–20 sophomores and juniors each year from each partner high school and hopes to continue assisting students and their families navigate the secondary and postsecondary education system.
