The Cedar Valley Male Initiative strives to support college youth and encourage them not only to complete college, but also to excel there. A full 98 percent of participants agree that the program helped them use academic resources on campus, and 93 percent believe that it helped them define academic and career goals. The program not only provides students mentorship through their first college experiences, but also teaches them how to attain those same successes once leaving the program. The Brother II Brother student club meets weekly to provide a bridge of support to participants in the program.

El Centro's Men of Distinction (MOD) program began with 18 fellows and mentors eager to take the first steps on their pathways to success. In total, we held six sessions, including MOD Orientation, Navigating Life Challenges and Effective Goal Setting, Developing Your Personal Brand, Preparing for Industry, Communication Excellence and Mid-Year Milestones. Through involvement with MOD, several of our fellows received opportunities to represent, serve and be recognized by El Centro. As we continue with the program, we remain determined to continue the development of our fellows, to seek opportunities for our male students to learn and to empower them to achieve their academic, career and life goals.
