And, state-wide, tnAchieves needs 9,000 volunteer mentors.
With the Tennessee Promise last-dollar scholarship program, every student graduating from a Tennessee high school can attend a Tennessee community college or a Tennessee College of Applied Technology. And, to help the students transition from high school to college, they are assigned a tnAchieves mentor.
Mentors commit just one hour per month to support and encourage local students. All tnAchieves mentors complete virtual training and are provided with a comprehensive handbook guide to the program. Mentor training for Class of 2024 mentors will become available in Fall 2023! While tnAchieves mentoring is not a significant time commitment, it does significantly impact our students’ success.
Mentors serve as a resource, share their experiences, and offer encouragement and support. As a result, mentors impact student success, and that success can have a favorable impact that lasts for generations and transforms our communities.
