tnAchieves

tnAchieves, the local partnering organization for TN Promise, needs volunteers to serve as mentors for the Class of 2020! TN Promise allows any graduating high school senior the opportunity to attend a community or technical college tuition and fee free. Many of the students will be the first in their family to attend college and may also need some additional, non-financial support. tnAchieves provides this support by pairing each scholarship applicant with a volunteer mentor. As of today, we still need 91 mentors in Montgomery County to meet our goal of 265 and ensure all of our local TN Promise students are supported. tnAchieves mentors spend 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 http://www.tnachieves.org/mentors/apply or contact Graham Thomas with tnAchieves at graham@tnachieves.org or (615) 604-1306.
