Past MTRP Programs

This page contains a proud history of information regarding programs MTRP has offered in the past. We continue to seek and create rich opportunities for our participants.

High School Teacher/Mentor Program (HSTMP)

HSTMP identified high school students who were interested in teaching and paired them with a teacher-mentor. We also sponsored a parent night to share information on minority teacher shortages, career choices, and college admission requirements.

Middle School Teaching Awareness Program (MSTAP)

The MSTAP worked with select teachers in participating schools to encourage seventh and eighth graders who expressed an interest in teaching. Students shadowed educators, taught mini-lessons, competed in essay contests, visited college campuses, and more.

Post High School Participant Program (PHSPP)

PHSPP helped high school graduates interested in teaching but who needed assistance in meeting college entrance requirements, through counseling, advising, and professional development seminars.


TeacherBridge provided professional development seminars, skill development, and advising services to support students' transition from a community college to the University of Louisville's College of Education and Human Development (CEHD). The program convened in the summer, offering two seminars per day for a total of five days. Participants were involved in a number of collaborative activities that helped them become confident in their writing, learn more about careers in education, and better prepare for success at the university level. While the program focused on computer technology, writing skills development, orientation to CEHD, entrance exams, financial aid, and advising, emphasis was placed on extensive training to learn the ins and outs of the teaching profession, professionalism, resume writing, interviewing techniques, successful financial planning, and setting educational career-oriented goals. TeacherBridge participants emerged with the necessary tools for success while at the CEHD.
