Center for Male Engagement Webinar – Recording and slides

Posted by PHENND on November 10, 2020

On October 14, PHENND hosted its first College Success Network webinar of the 20-21 school year, featuring staff from the Center for Male Engagement at the Community College of Philadelphia.

Geared towards African-American males, the Center for Male Engagement (CME) provides its members with targeted academic and non-academic supports designed to enhance their skill sets, cultivate a sense of belonging and build resolve as they pursue a degree at Community College of Philadelphia and continue beyond.

Resources available to members include support coaches who serve as their primary advocates on campus, help them adapt to a college environment, lessen some of the barriers to academic success and encourage them to take advantage of the College’s many academic and social opportunities.

The CME webinar invited participants to “learn more about how we do ‘the work.’ Learn about our approaches to holistic student support and how we accept, validate, and affirm male students of color. Our framework is broad and easily applicable to offices across nonprofits, higher education, and private companies. We’re excited to learn with you and grow together.”
