Young Men and Women of Color

Come Join The Young Men and Women Of Color! 

The Young Men & Women of Color Initiative (YM&WOC) at MassBay is designed to increase the enrollment, recruitment, retention and success rates of young men and women of color students at the college. The program is designed to assist students with their college experience and facilitate their journey toward achieving their academic, personal and professional goals. YM&WOC members along with their program coach, Joselina Fontes and Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Lynn Moore meet regularly for one-on-one coaching as well as monthly meeting groups to assure that students are aware of, and take advantage of, the opportunities and support services offered at MassBay.

What We Do

The YM&WOC program has implemented an outreach program that includes mentoring, coaching, support programs, and workshops including but not limited to topics surrounding race & identity, mental health and transfer workshops, yoga, motivational speakers and much more. The students receive invaluable support as they adapt to experiencing a college community, navigating college life, and taking charge of their learning.
