Men's Support

Counselors shaking hands with manThe group will be facilitated by AHC Male Faculty Counselors who are trained to assist in exploring men’s issues such as:

  • College Success Skills
  • Careers and Job Relocation
  • Parenting & Relationships
  • Self-Motivation
  • Culture & Identity
  • Stress Management


The goal of this group is to help our Male Students increase their completion rate at Allan Hancock College. We know it’s not easy to do this alone. So, sign up and receive support during this semester. Participants will benefit from the following:

  • book vouchers
  • field trips
  • school supplies
  • gas cards
  • community & camaraderie
  • mentoring

I have been a part of the MSG since day one. These groups of men have encouraged me to achieve goals I had only dreamed of! Thank you Dr. Hernandez, Mr. Navarrette, and Mr. Freeland for believing in me when I didn't believe in myself. Dream Big, Sky's the Limit!

Since joining the Men’s Support Group at Allan Hancock College, I have been able to push forward in my educational goals with the inspiration and support of my fellow brothers.
