Going to college would be a milestone that I can not hope to reach without the help of tnAchieves.

The students’ desire for help was an eye-opener. I did not realize that they would want, need, and appreciate my help as much as they did!

Olivia, Hancock County mentor and tnAchieves Ambassador

I’m very proud to be a part of the history being made right in front of our eyes.

Benny, Lewis County mentor

As the only person in my family to ever go to college, tnAchieves has made it easier for me to understand what I need to do to succeed.

Central H.S. Student

I really enjoy being a mentor, it is a great experience for me. I have received nothing but positive feedback from my students and their parents about the program.

Floriana, Robertson County mentor

I believe the students really get it now, and know that there are people who are invested in their futures.

Charles, Shelby County mentor

All my life I always said that I would be the first in my family to make it to college and graduate. tnAchieves is helping my dream come true.

Austin East H.S. Student

tnAchieves introduced me to my mentor, Charlee, who helped me get on track and kept me focused. With her help, I was able to realize that anything was possible.

Fulton H.S. Student

I see kids every day who never thought college was possible for them, but are now excitedly scheduling their classes for next year. It's been a thrill to be a part of it!
