The Minority Male Mentoring Program
Recently 3MP was able to volunteer with a local agency that helps feed the homeless and hungry. The donation came from an anonymous donor. the agency, Good Shepard Ministries, was happy to accept and these young men were more then happy to lend a hand.
I felt it was time to look back at our past 3MP grads and transfers. Many of these students come back to share with the new and exisiting members on their experiences at four year colleges. We look for more success and and a growth in our 3MP family this upcoming year. Many of our leaders graduate this year but that just leaves room for others to find their place. All members of the past know they can always come back to share wisdom or to get help getting back into school. Our motto this year is “Built to Be Great; Destined To Overcome.”

Kywan Keyes who has just been accepted to UNC-Charlotte has really put in the work and perseverance to move on to the next level despite any of his fears. David Wilson who has been involved in the 3MP, Phi Theta Kappa, and a student Ambassador has served as a role model for many students. This is his 2nd degree and he is now moving on to the next level of his journey.
All of these students have been awesome members and contributors and students of the Minority Male Mentoring Program at Cape Fear Community College. We all want to say congratulations and UNCW…UNCC…World… LOOK OUT!!!
Hi! Welcome back. After classes were done 3MP had a great time volunteering for the Coast 97.3 Feeding Friends Holiday Banquet. All students were involved in one way or another making connections with the community and enjoying food and fellowship with each other. The event was catered by Award-Winning local chef Keith Rhodes from the show “Top Chef.” After I explained to him what 3MP was about and that he was an inspiration as an entrepreneur, Mr.Rhodes expressed that he would love to help 3MP in any way he could. “That’s what I do,” was his response . I am especially proud of the turn out even though the semester had already concluded. Thanks for your support! We’re looking forward to 2013! Stay 3M Focused!
Between Spring and Fall of 2012 we’ve traveled to schools such as the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and North Carolina Central University. In the upcoming semester we are looking forward to traveling to schools such as the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Fayetteville State University, and the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
