Take it from Ty and David two of our school principals and allies in the work we do:
Over the years Project MALES has partnered up with local organizations in the Central Texas area. We would like to share two testimonials we have received from two of our valued partners.
“In a time where mentors are needed more than ever, Project Males has been by far the best group we have worked with. The ability of Project MALES to use their age, experience and enrollment in college as a catalyst for building and maintaining relationships is amazing. Our kids ask to see their mentors when issues arise and are disappointed when they are unable to meet. Travis attributes our growth in our mentoring program to the work of Project MALES and absolutely knows the group assisted with our decline in chronic absenteeism for our mentees.” -Ty Davidson, Travis HS Principal
“Project MALES was absolutely amazing with our students at Martin Middle School. I was extremely impressed with the dedication and work ethic of these young men and women. Our students became excited upon hearing that their MALE mentors were on campus. The entire program of project MALES students, faculty and staff acted professionally and communicated well with our administration. I would like to offer a standing ovation to Project MALES for all their hard work. We at Martin Middle School are looking forward to working with them again this coming 2017/2018 school year.” -David Lopez, Martin MS Assistant Principal
