About the Program
Project Challenge is designed to recruit minority males to college and give them a “jumpstart” on their college education.
Program participants receive mentoring through the Man to Man (M2M) program. Â This gives students an opportunity to be paired with a minority male employed at Pensacola State College, whom students are expected to meet with at least once per week. Â Through Project Challenge, students can also expect cultural experiences, workshops, travel, career planning, counseling, financial aid assistance, skills development and experiential learning opportunities.
Program participants are also eligible to gain valuable work experience with on-campus employment during the program.
“Project Challenge program changed my whole perspective on attending college. Â It taught me how to deal with college the RIGHT way.” â€“Derrick Blackmon
