KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) – TN Achiceves has begun recruiting volunteer mentors to provide support to every TN Promise applicant.

The organization is in need of 9,000 mentors for the TN Promise applicant class of 2022.

Mentors will work with a small group of three to seven students to aid in their transition from high school to college. Mentors will send reminders to students of important deadlines, serve as a trusted college resource and provide encouragement.

“You cannot replace the committed, encouraging support offered by a local mentor,” says tnAchieves Executive Director Krissy DeAlejandro. “Through the challenges of the past year, we have been grateful to our volunteers across the state who answered the call to ensure students successfully transition to college and feel seen. While TN Promise funding is important, mentors represent the heart of our program.”
