TN Promise needs 24 volunteer mentors for Hardin County by Dec. 4

Dec. 4 is the deadline to apply as a Class of 2021 tnAchieves mentor, but as of today, Hardin County still needs 24 mentors.
Mentors serve as a resource and offer encouragement and help for students as they transition from high school to college.
Many who use TN Promise – which provides high school graduates the opportunity to attend a community or technical college free of tuition and mandatory fees – will be the first in their family to pursue higher education and can need assistance through the process.
tnAchieves says mentoring requires a one hour per month commitment. In 2021, mentoring will be entirely online using tnAchieves’ new virtual mentoring platform, tnAchieves CONNECT.
Interested volunteers have to be at least 21 years old, are subject to a background check, and must complete a one-hour training session.
tnAchieves is a non-profit that has provided scholarships with mentor support since 2008.
Those interested in applying or learning more can visit www.tnAchieves.org/mentors/apply or contact Tyler Ford at 309- 945-3446.
