    MTL is a peer-to-peer mentoring, student leadership and educational reengagement program 
    which serves youth who are at risk for not graduating and/or remaining in school. The program 
    aims to increase graduation rates and decrease dropout rates, particularly among minority 
    males. MTL is based on five pillars:

    1. Academic Achievement 
    Ninth (9th) and tenth (10th) graders who have earned below a 2.0 grade point average are 
    assigned a caring adult-an Academic Coach-and student mentors for ongoing support, 
    including learning study skills in a quiet, structured environment (study hall) twice 
    per week, as well as receiving support with monitoring and increasing academic progress.

    2.  Mentoring 
    High achieving  (GPA  3.0  or above)  upperclassmen with demonstrated leadership skills 
    participate in a two-year mentor relationship with students who have earned a GPA 
    lower than 2.0. This is a structured relationship that is facilitated by MTL program staff. All MTL 
    students are exposed to adult role models and mentors from the community during 
    monthly workshops,  and from interacting with guest speakers who take part in
    the  MTL  Career and  College  Exploration  Series. Monthly  parent education  workshops  to  
    cover  topics such  as  Graduation  Requirements, Grading,   Stages   of   Adolescent   
    Development,   Academic   Needs  of Adolescents,  etc.  Parent workshops to address  
    parental needs, such as; Employability Training, Managing Stress, and literacy classes will also 
    be offered while simultaneously developing parent leaders.

    3. Family Involvement 
    MTL parents and guardians attend monthly parent education workshops that cover topics such 
    as; graduation requirements, grading, stages of adolescent development, academic needs 
    of adolescents, etc.

    4. Community Support 
    Community members volunteer to serve as adult mentors and role models, presenters at 
    parent and student workshops, guest speakers through the College and Career Exploration 
    Series, as well as donors, sponsors and members of the MTL Advisory Board.

    5.  Incentives 
    Program participants earn several incentives as they work to improve their grades and meet 
     high school graduation requirements. Student mentors also earn incentives as they inspire 
    their peers to achieve academic excellence.  These incentives include recognition within the 
    school and community, visits to local colleges and post-secondary institutions, and an all-
    expenses paid College Tour.
