The Goal of the AAML

The goal of the African American Male Leadership program is to inspire Contra Costa college students, especially African American male students. We are giving them our full support to meet and excel in their educational persuit of a degree, certificate and matriculation to a 4 year college or university.

A Focused Mindset

"The foundation of a strong college and career going culture begins with the identity or mindset of the student. For many African American young men, the values of education are not always intrinsic and must be developed. This workshop helps young men explore their place in higher education and begin the work of cultivating the mindset of a college student.”
