VISION, IDEAS, ORGANIZATION

Boys to Men (BTM) is a mentoring program specifically aimed at the retention of African American/Black Male students at Montgomery College. It seeks to foster a greater degree of academic success student activism and personal responsibility. BTM will provide academic and personal mentoring for the above targeted student population. Participating students will also benefit from having their academic progress monitored each semester. We will have an off campus gathering/activity as well as a book reading and discussion series.
