Alpha Phi Alpha Uplifts Youth in Mentorship Program

Alpha Phi Alpha celebrated the fifth year of the Male Mentor program in a ceremony held in late May, The Record reports.

Particularly, the program served a great benefit for Eric McCants, an 18-year-old Bear Creek High School senior who will be graduating with a 3.14 GPA. It is a huge accomplishment for he had a 1.5 GPA his freshman year.

McCants told a group of high school and junior high school student from Lodi Unified his involvement in the fraternity’s program helped turn his life around, The Record reports.

I was messing around, he said, and I’m still feeling the ramification of that now.



McCants, a four-year participant in the program, told the group he had to “work through adult school” to get his grades up.

The focus of the program is to teach black students to make good decisions, cope with stress and other leadership skills, according to The Record.

McCants is proud to know the program benefits him and wants other to benefit too.

“I just wanted to keep it going to help other people like the help I received,” he said.
