For Immediate Release
KnoxAchieves Recruits 2010 Mentors!
Mentor Application [PDF]
July 8, 2009 - KnoxAchieves is a program that provides an opportunity for 500 Knox County public high school graduates to receive up to $2000 for community college tuition. One unique component of KnoxAchieves is the mentoring program.

KnoxAchieves is recruiting individuals to serve as mentors in all Knox County public high schools. These mentors act as encouragers to first generation and lower-to-middle income college attendees. Essentially, the mentor attempts to eliminate the barriers as the student transitions from high school to college.

As a mentor, you are responsible for attending one mandatory training session in September and any subsequent follow-up training. KnoxAchieves mentors will learn to guide students through the application process as well as ensure they meet financial aid and college registration deadlines. To accomplish this, mentors will also be asked to meet with students as least once a month beginning in December.

If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of some very deserving but underserved students, please complete the KnoxAchieves mentor application form. It is important to note that you will be subject to a background check.

If you have further questions, please email Krissy DeAlejandro at krissy.dealejandro@knoxcounty.org or call 865-215-4754.
