The Black and Latino Male Empowerment Group is a facilitated open discussion environment for African American and Latino men to meet biweekly within a safe space. The Black and Latino Male Empowerment Group explores shared experiences as Black and Latino men on a majority campus. The goal is to assist men of color with identifying ways to fully embrace the Penn State experience through academic success, the development of community service initiatives, and relationship building, while taking advantage of all academic and social opportunities within the University.
