As you know, tnAchieves is a partnering organization to Governor Haslam’s TN Promise in Shelby County. They are looking for mentors to support the fourth class of TN Promise scholars. Currently, Shelby County still needs 735 mentors to meet its goal and ensure each student has a local support system.
A tnAchieves mentor spends about one hour per month working with a group of students to help eliminate the barriers associated with the transition from high school to college. Mentors remind students of important deadlines, serve as a trusted college resource and, most importantly, encourage students to reach their full potential. The time commitment is small, only about one hour per month, but the impact on the students can be life changing. To learn more and apply you can visit www.tnachieves.org/mentors/apply.
