JACKSON – The Minority Male Leadership Initiative at Hinds Community College will host M2M Summer Fest on Friday, June 24 at the Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center to highlight the program’s services.
Attendees to the free event may sign up for M2M, register for classes and visit information booths while they enjoy free food, prizes and a video game truck. The outdoor fest runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Do you want to change your future by excelling academically, culturally, and socially? The time is now to join M2M,” said Dr. Shakira Cain, who directs the program at the campus.
The program aims to help African-American males succeed in college by providing leadership training, career counseling, mentoring and tutoring. Participants discover personal strengths, interests and motivation, all of which can spur an array of career interests and post-graduate options.
Those who want to register for classes at M2M Summer Fest are advised to do the following before arriving at the Fest:
- submit a current admission application for the Summer or Fall 2016 semester
- submit the official transcript from the last school attended
- submit official ACT scores, OR take the Accuplacer, OR submit a college transcript showing the completion of at least one Math and English course.
To become a member of M2M, students must be enrolled at JATC and complete an application for the program. The college’s Enrollment Services team will be on hand for the event to help prospective students apply to the college online.
