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.
