A Word From the MBK Program Coordinator
As many of you know, getting into college is only part of the battle – staying and thriving in this new environment becomes an even greater challenge. Through this page, we hope to keep you informed of important educational issues and opportunities that impact African American males. We will feature a variety of information including educational and community resources, event calendars, and a blog to answer your questions about academics, test preparation, high school graduation, majors, careers, and the college-going process.
We hope these efforts will help you stay connected to other like-minded brothers and the issues that our important to our community as well as encourage you to think critically and be educational advocates for yourself and other African American males. The vision of MBK™ page is to become an educational forum for high school and college African American males and their families.
