The Men's Institute for Leadership and Education (MILE) Program kicked off it's 2017-18 cohort with an intensive leadership training from May 31- June 2, 2017. Following a competitive application process, 25 male scholars were selected to participate in the year-long program. 

The Summer Leadership Program focuses on skills such as emotional intelligence, self-efficacy, time management, and stress management. Scholars worked together to complete a project based on their unique strengths and ability to collaborate. Following completion of the leadership training, students will be paired with trained male mentors who are leaders from the community for quarterly activities. MILE Scholars also receive intensive academic counseling and support services such as textbook lending and laptop lending. Each of the scholars receives a monetary award upon successful completion of the program. 

MILE is designed to increase the leadership skills and college completion rates of male students at Hartnell College. MILE is modeled on the highly successful Women's Education and Leadership Institute, (WELI), but the curriculum and activities are designed specifically for men. Congratulations to MILE Cohort II!
