How Can M.E.N. Help You?

Succeeding in college takes hard work, perseverance and determination - and a strong support network.  That 's where M.E.N. comes in.

Members often enroll in the same courses so that they can study and mentor each other. Leadership workshops and networking encourages members to know each other across the Maricopa district. This means that M.E.N. members have a wide net of support that lasts well after they leave Glendale Community College. 

Meetings are held on Thursdays from 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Please email Rico Moran @ for a link to join.
