The Project MALES Student Mentoring Program was selected as the 2014 Outstanding Mentoring Program. The award was presented at the Texas Summit for Mentoring held on Friday, January 10, 2014 at the University of Texas at San Antonio’s downtown campus. The award is presented to organizations and individuals for their contributions to mentoring across the state of Texas. The San Antonio Mentoring Forum (SAMF) promotes mentoring awareness, fosters collaboration in the mentoring community, and creates a forum for the informal sharing of promising practices. Our Mentoring Program has mentored over 140 students in the past three years through a partnership with Communities in Schools of Central Texas and Austin ISD. The program highlights mentoring as a way to leverage social capital among males of color at various points in the educational pipeline to ultimately build a strong college-going culture among this group of students.
