With just two months until the tnAchieves mentor deadline of December 1st they are almost halfway to their goal. They appreciate you supporting their program and local TN Promise students through this important transition.  If each of their current mentors registered to participate with the Class of 2018 found one additional mentor they would almost meet their goal overnight. Their current mentors are their best marketing tool.  Please consider sharing this opportunity with your friends, family, coworkers and entire personal and professional networks.

Currently, Williamson County has 148 of the 317 mentors needed to meet their goal and meet student demand.  They know the support of a mentor reminding students of deadlines, being a trusted college resource and encouraging them to reach their full potential can be life changing.  Please help by getting the word out in your community!

They are also introducing their #FindAFriend mentor campaign.  They have received donated gift cards from local restaurants and attractions, tickets to sporting events, gift bags from local chambers of commerce and several other prizes that they will giveaway to mentors that recruit new volunteers!  When you find someone new to become a mentor make sure they list you in the “How did you hear about tnAchieves?” field of the application.  You will then be entered into a drawing for their #FindAFriend giveaways. Potential new mentors can apply at www.tnachieves.org/mentors/apply.

They cannot do this work without you. Their staff of 14 relies on the supports you provide to ensure TN Promise students are successful, and the data shows your efforts are working.  More students in Tennessee are going to college than ever before, Tennessee has led the nation in FAFSA completion three years in a row, student debt is down, TN Promise students are retaining at rates higher than their peers and it is all because you invest time in their success.

Thank you for your continued support of tnAchieves and helping them bring new advocates for higher education to our program to support TN Promise students statewide.
