Minority Male Success Initiative High School Program


Minority Male Success Initiative (MMSI) High School Program was established to provide resources, support, and opportunities for the minority male population within Pitt County high schools. Our program identifies juniors and seniors who have expressed interest in attending Pitt Community College, attending a college /university upon graduating or are currently enrolled in one of the PCC high school programs. The program is a yearlong commitment for students to participate each month with a career & college preparation workshop and one-on-one sessions helping students determine their future goals. 


  1. Increase the graduation rates of minority males in Pitt County Schools and the number of minority males enrolled in PCC’s Career & College Program
  2. Educate minority males about the financial and academic benefits of PCC’s Bulldog Promise Scholarship.
  3. Prepare junior and senior high school minority males for the rigors and transition into higher education.
  4. Assist minority males in identifying a career path and gaining a sense of self-worth.


The MMSI High School Program welcomes minority male juniors and seniors selected by their high school to participate.

College Bound

Started in 2007, College Bound is a part of PCC’s commitment to removing barriers that make it difficult for black males to continue pursuing their educational goals beyond high school. Students participating in the Program learn about the college experience and higher education’s economic and community importance. At the end of the year, students can travel to PCC to attend College Bound.
