The grant will provide support for the Project MALES Student Fellows Mentoring Program and will allow Project MALES to expand the number of fellows and extend mentoring to a second school in the Austin Independent School District.

The mentoring program seeks to create a critical mass of young, engaged, and civic-minded Latino male students to positively affect their academic success and college readiness through mentoring bonds across multiple generations.
