Male Development Initiatives

Bethune-Cookman University continues to continue its founders', Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, goal to 'Serve' through Black College Male Explorers. A program that not only bridges the gap between college and community but gives young men between the sixth and twelfth grade an immersive experience through mentoring, tutoring, and exposure to college and career exploration. The program encourages these young men to look toward their future and set their goals higher than they thought possible. 

“We support students in their holistic development from boys to men through tutoring and mentoring during the school year when the need is greatest and providing a rich summer experience that pushes so-called ‘at risk’ students to risk it all and aim high,” said the Director of Male Initiatives Jermaine McKinney.

To enable continuance and growth in producing high-caliber young men, we are extending an opportunity to you to support future leaders. Your donation will benefit the Black Male College Explorers Program. It will help fund this most valuable male mentoring program and invest in the lives of young men in our communities.
