Mentoring club at NLC supports male education

Student club members unite to share the value of education.

At a team-building event on campus, young college males from Northeast Lakeview College (NLC) congregate to learn more about the H.O.M.E. (Help Own Male Education) student club. The informal gathering is also an opportunity for peers to share concerns about academics but also about real-world issues.

H.O.M.E officially launched in 2009 and the student club began meeting formally in 2010 with associate professor Dr. Archie Wortham serving as the club’s sponsor. To date, the club has 15 active faculty members who mentor students weekly. Student members are encouraged to meet with their mentors one-on-one at least once a week.

Although the club is not exclusive to males only and welcomes all NLC students, H.O.M.E is based on the idea that men need to support each other and serve as role models. Members focus on issues that affect males in education, society and the workforce.
