Geared towards African-American males, the Center for Male Engagement (CME) provides its members with targeted academic and non-academic supports designed to enhance their skill sets, cultivate a sense of belonging and build resolve as they pursue a degree at Community College of Philadelphia and continue beyond.

Access to on-site computers, supplemental education software, a resource library and a quiet study area conducive to educational achievement.

Academic support in English, math and science. Learning specialists assist with key foundation concepts and enhance academic skills.
