Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color

Based within the Academic Diversity Initiatives of DDCE, Project MALES aims to create and cultivate a support network for Latino male students at UT-Austin, within local school districts, and throughout the surrounding community. The Project is a research-informed model that highlights mentoring as a way to leverage social capital among Latino males. Specifically, we hope to explore innovative ways to establish mentoring links between Latino male role models, current UT Latino male students, and younger Latino males within the Austin area and surrounding communities.
