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

Benny, Lewis County mentor

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 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!

Becca, Warren 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

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

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

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

Charles, Shelby County mentor

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