Alpha Beta Omega: Leadership/Mentoring for African American Males

Alpha Beta Omega will operate as a mentoring program for African American male students enrolled at GRCC. This mentoring program will systematically address academic deficiencies, college adjustment, social skill development, life skill acquisition and professional development. This program will utilize a holistic approach to mentoring that will serve as a medium for building resilience, productive coping, motivation, focus, critical thinking skills and social responsibility into the student's system of thinking, feeling and behaving. The development of such a system of thinking, feeling and behaving will effectively equip the targeted population with the internal resources necessary to transcend their various social, psychological and educational barriers. This program will integrate existing academic support services such as CLS 100, tutoring, counseling/advising, and other available student services to accomplish its goal of life skill development. This intervention will pair program participants with both peer and staff/faculty mentors. In addition to mandatory participation in various workshops, presentations, tutoring sessions, community service opportunities, etc., this program will also utilize weekly meetings as a means for providing participants with a platform for engaging in culturally appropriate discussions related to their personal, social, psychological and educational experiences.
