More Mentors Needed for TN Promise Program

tnAchieves is needing 35 more mentors out of a total of 84 from Coffee County for the Tennessee Promise program to ensure each student has a local support system. tnAchieves partners with Gov. Haslam’s Tn Promise to recruit mentors to work with more than 60,000 Tn Promise scholars from the graduating class of 2018. 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 attend one-hour training and two one-hour meetings with the students at the high school. The rest of the mentor program can be done via phone calls, email or text messages.
The deadline to sign up as a mentor is Dec. 1st. To learn more, go to www.tnachieves.org .
