THE CENTER FOR THE AFRICAN AMERICAN MALE (CAAM)

This activity is designed to provide opportunities for African American Males (AAM) to discover their authentic identities by allowing them to achieve their full potential as scholars and assume leadership roles in the community upon graduation. Strategies to increase retention, promote a positive self-image, engage in mentorship collaborations and through sponsored research provide critical information relating to African American Males (AAM) in our community. Strategies to improve the retention rate of male students will include faculty mentoring of CAAM participants, tutoring, providing professional development through Saturday Academies and Male Dialogues as well as using other on-campus retention resources to monitor and address academic risks. Outreach to AAM elementary and secondary school students within institution's 24-county service area will be provided mentorships and programs designed to promote academic achievement and higher education goals. Finally, this activity will be used to conduct research regarding African Males and to provide resources and information to all African American Male initiatives in our twenty-four county service area. This activity will assist the Center for the African American Male to work vigorously to expand its scope and range on a continuous basis in order to advance the lives of African American Males in Southwest Georgia.
