Men's Center to host summer institute for young males

Men's Center to host summer institute for young malesLone Star College-Kingwood’s Men’s Center is reaching out to the community to make sure young males are ready for life after high school.

This summer, the Men’s Center will host its African American and Hispanic Institute for Males on the college campus starting June 19 with a graduation ceremony on June 22. During the four days, middle school and high school males ages 13-15 will learn life skills, interviewing skills, study history and meet mentors.

“In an effort to expose our young African American and Hispanic men to life after high school, the Men’s Center has created an intensive outreach program. During the institute, participants will learn key principles that will prepare them for college,” said Al Dorsey, Men’s Center director.

Participants will arrive each day at 8:30 a.m. and leave at 3:45 p.m. They will have the opportunity to engage in workshops, hands-on activities, and leadership principles. LSC-Kingwood faculty and administrators will lead the workshops in the Student Conference Center.

“It’s a very intense four-day workshop, one that will prove to be a positive experience for our participants,” Dorsey said.

Lunch will be provided daily. There is no cost to participate in the program, but the deadline to register is Friday, May 26. For more information on the institute or on the Men’s Center, contact Al Dorsey at 281-318-4351 or alfred.dorsey@lonestar.edu.
