MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - tnAchieves is in need of more than 7,500 mentors by this fall to ensure every student in the TN Promise Class of 2023 has mentor support.

The mentor program is returning to in-person, mandatory meetings next year to allow volunteers to connect with their students at a stronger level.

“The entire tnAchieves team is eager to return to in-person mentor/student meetings,” said tnAchieves Senior Director of Mentors Tyler Ford. “After nearly three years of virtual or hybrid mentoring, we recognize that there is no replacement for gathering a group of students in-person to establish an initial connection.”

Volunteers are asked to give one hour a month to provide support for high seniors in their community and assist them with their higher education goals.

The deadline is Oct. 21.
