Mentoring & Tutoring
TRIPLE IMPACT YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM (YEP)
The Triple Impact Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) is a collaborative effort between Tennessee State University and various Nashville organizations. The program is designed to improve the academic achievement and healthy behaviors of 70 high school students who are matched with 70 college mentors. YEP does this by engaging high school youth, along with their mentor, through weekly service projects to enhance academic performance, increase knowledge of healthy behaviors, and improve self esteem. Tennessee State student mentors are paid $1000 per academic year for their involvement in the program.
For information on how to get involved, contact Shirley Nix-Davis or call 963-1243.
MNPS READING CLINICS
Led by Dr. Tammy Lipsey, MNPS Reading Clinics offer TSU students an opportunity to tutor secondary school students in reading skills. Volunteers are always needed at the 5+ sites across the city. Participants must complete a 4-hour training session and commit to 1 hour a week (2 days/30 minutes). This program is great for pre-teacher service or those in the field of education, but welcomes students from all disciplines.
For more information or to sign up to volunteer, please contact email@example.com or the Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement.
