Student Leadership & Mentoring Programs

TABPHE Corpus Christi has participated in youth mentoring events, camps and programs over the past 10 years. Leadership camps such as "Girls Stepping Up & Out" and "Boys to Men: Manning Up" were created Lois Jefferson (Coach J) with the City of Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department. With a partnership formed between the two groups, a camp was held in the Fall of Spring of every year and concluded with a joint camp in October 2016. The joint camp was renamed the "Lois R. Jefferson Leadership Series" and included a dedication to Coach J after her retirement. For details/pictures of the previous camps, please check our TABPHE Corpus Christi Archives.

TABPHE Corpus Christi has since moved to creating a mentoring program at West Oso High School. The mentoring program will kick off during the Spring 2018 semester. To volunteer or participate in this program, please email


The Texas Association of Black Personnel in Higher Education (TABPHE), “taffy”, serves as a voice in helping educational Institutions address key goals for achieving success by working through local chapters to ensure a better educational system and equitable opportunities for all.
