The Shop


The mission of “The Shop” is to cultivate the minds and curiosity of minority men (as defined by the Virginia Community College System) at Virginia Peninsula Community College to influence independence, goal achievement, and self-esteem with the intention of increasing graduation rates, GPAs, and retention.


The vision of the shop is to be the premiere support and developmental resource for minority men at Virginia Peninsula Community College.


The Shop is centered around the principles of scholarship, brotherhood, and service.

More about the Program

This program creates community not only at the college but in the Hampton Roads area. We connect with other programs to benefit our students and our surrounding communities. Through engaging lessons on independent living skills such as car management, investing, and CPR training, we are giving students the tools to be successful beyond college. As a network, we expose our students to pathways of success. At the Shop, we are a brotherhood determined to see your success! For more information sign up below, or contact us.
