The Daily Texan, UT Austin’s student newspaper, highlights Project MALES 10 Year celebration.
UT-Austin Latino diversity initiative Project MALES celebrates 10-year anniversary by Kaushiki Roy (30 April, 2021).
Project MALES began in 2011 under co-founders Victor Sáenz, UT’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy chair, and Luis Ponjuan, associate professor at Texas A&M University.
“Throughout my 5 years with Project MALES, I have worked with teams of up to more than 70 mentors and with dozens of young men at the schools,” Aguayo said. “We hope that being part of Project MALES has given both our mentors and our mentees skills that they can apply to their future careers and leadership roles.”
“Whichever way mentoring takes place, we will continue to the mission and vision of our work, to support both our mentors and mentees to the best of our abilities and to continue to be a resource to the Austin community,” Aguayo said.
