Expansion

The Expansion of MTL

Since its inception, the MTL model has been embraced by Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) and the community.  Many other schools across the District have replicated the program.  In 2014, BCPS received a $200,000 grant for the Minority Male Mentoring Initiative (MMMI) from the Florida Department of Education. The grant provided Deerfield Beach and Nova High Schools the opportunity to expand their MTL Programs. The grant also supported a partnership between BCPS and Broward College that allowed program participants the opportunity to interact with college students who served as mentors and role models, thus helping students make a successful transition from high school to college and/or the workforce.

With the sunset of the grant from USDOE’s High School Graduation Initiative, BCPS has decided to fund the MTL program, which now has 23 schools including two elementary schools.
