Mentoring Tomorrow’s Leaders Interns Participate in Superintendent’s Summer Program

Thursday, July 17, 2014
This summer, 19 high school students from Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) are participating in The Mentoring Tomorrow's Leaders (MTL) Superintendent's Summer Internship Program, July 7 - 24, 2014. The program is designed to develop students' leadership skills by exposing them to professionals throughout BCPS and give them the opportunity to assist departments within the District with special projects, while earning community service hours. Student interns are learning about leadership, professional office conduct, program management and careers within BCPS. 
This year’s MTL interns are completing special projects, in addition to meeting with leadership staff and participating in workshops and site visits.  The students split their time between the District’s main offices at the Kathleen C. Wright Administration Center and the Lauderdale Manors Early Learning and Family Resource Center. 
Student interns attend Boyd Anderson, Deerfield Beach, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Monarch, Nova, Plantation, and South Broward high schools.
