With five days until the tnAchieves mentor recruitment deadline, 2,900 volunteer mentors are still needed to meet student demand. Carter County still needs 31 mentors to meet the local goal of 84 recruited.
Those interested in mentoring can visit https://www.tnachieves.org/mentors. The deadline is this Friday, October 21.
“Now more than ever, one person can make a difference,” said tnAchieves President and CEO Krissy DeAlejandro. “One person can change the life of a local student and leave a lasting impact on their community. As we approach our recruitment deadline, we encourage any individual who believes in the power of community support and the potential of local students to apply to serve as a tnAchieves mentor.”
tnAchieves mentors commit just one hour per month to serve students in their community. All mentors in 2023 will begin working with their students in November of 2022 and will meet their students in person at the student’s high school in December or January. Mentors will receive training and a handbook guide to the program.
Mentors must be 21 years of age and are subject to a background check. Those interested in joining us can visit https://tnAchieves.org/mentors.
