Learn more about Mentoring in 2023

Join us in June as we discuss upcoming changes to the mentoring program and how we are adapting to create stronger connections between mentors and students. We are reimagining the volunteer mentor program to amplify the impact that volunteers are able to have on a student's post-secondary journey. We're ready to bring students back to the college pipeline, and hope you will join us in this effort! Click below to register for one of these upcoming webinars.

Why Mentor?

tnAchieves mentors play a critical role in the success of students across the state of Tennessee as they pursue a post-secondary credential. Many students need just a little extra help in navigating the college-going process. tnAchieves mentors provide that support by offering encouragement and personal guidance to students in their community.  

What are the responsibilities of a mentor?

tnAchieves Mentors are asked to serve three essential roles for their students from mid-February 2022 through their first semester of college. Mentoring only takes one hour per month, but that one hour can make a significant difference in a student's life! 

Mentors invest 12 hours annually assisting 5-10 high school seniors. tnAchieves has designed the mentor role so that even the busiest executive, parent or young professional can make a meaningful impact. If you do not have experience working in education, do not worry! All mentors receive an online training, handbook and support from the tnAchieves staff.
