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 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.
Some of the themes for the upcoming semester/year will be: Overcoming math anxiety; The role of students in social movement; scholarships; and combating domestic violence. We will have a monthly off campus gathering/activity and we will also be adding a monthly film and discussion series.
For more information about BTM and how you can participate please contact: Prof. Gus Griffin at (240) 567-5090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
