A Male Mentoring Program

For many young men, the thought of going to and ultimately graduating from college is like being asked to move a mountain. This is especially true for thousands of strong, capable men of color. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Davidson County Community College has a remarkable program for men who want to realize their dreams of obtaining college degrees. It’s called Men Moving Mountains—or 3M—and it’s meant for men like you.

Diverse in nature, 3M provides educational and professional resources designed to help underrepresented men achieve greatness. As a member, you receive ongoing support from a network of caring coaches, mentors and fellow students who are there for you from start to finish.

Academic & Professional Development

3M offers activities and experiences developed to boost your skills in the classroom and in the workplace. This is done by:

Providing Support

  • One-on-One Coaching – Starting with the development of an Action Plan, weekly coaching sessions help you find personal success.
  • 3M Meetings – Each week, you, your mentors and your coaches will join together to connect, share information and build relationships with others on campus.

Fostering Growth

  • Field Trips – Off-campus outings open your mind to outstanding learning, social and job-related opportunities.
  • Leadership Opportunities – 3M helps you develop personal leadership skills through participation in campus and community events.
  • Workshops – Workshop activities provide you with opportunities to learn new, or improve upon existing, skills.

Encouraging Enlightenment

  • Conferences – Your confidence, character and personal perspective are expanded through active participation in local and regional conferences.
  • Guest Speakers – Dynamic thinkers and leaders deliver powerful messages to inspire and encourage you.

Personal Development

DCCC’s 3M Program not only prepares you for success in the classroom, but also for success in life. To inspire personal growth, 3M provides programming that helps you build on your strengths, while learning how to address and overcome any challenges you may have for finding success in college. 

Topics include:

  • How to Build Positive Relationships
  • How to Communicate Effectively
  • How to Manage Your Money
  • How to Get Involved on Campus
  • How to Identify/Manage Roadblocks
