With only four days remaining until the application deadline, tnAchieves still needs 1,678 volunteer mentors across the state.
Mentors serve as an important resource for students as they transition from high school to college. They provide reminders, serve as a resource and offer encouragement for students as they work to achieve college success. Many who use TN Promise will be the first in their family to go to college and simply need a little extra guidance and encouragement through the process.
tnAchieves mentoring only requires a one hour per month commitment. While the time commitment is small, the impact on a student's life can be significant.
"tnAchieves' success lies in its community-based approach. Mentors offer a local support system for TN Promise students as they make the leap from high school to college," said tnAchieves Executive Director Krissy DeAlejandro. "No experience is required as tnAchieves prepares you to help students navigate the transition. If you have one hour a month and are willing to support students as they reach their full potential, you can be a great mentor!"
Potential mentors must be 21 years of age, are subject to a background check and must complete a one hour training session. tnAchieves will provide weekly updates and support throughout the mentoring process! You can learn more or become a mentor today by completing an application by December 6 at tnAchieves.org/mentors/apply!
tnAchieves is a privately‐funded scholarship and mentoring program that seeks to provide an opportunity for every Tennessee student to earn a post‐secondary degree.
