Get Involved in College!
Going to class and getting good grades is a great accomplishment, but in order to get your "dream job" when you graduate, you need to get involved in as many extracurricular activities as you can! For starters, tnAchieves has an Ambassador program and a Peer2Peer Mentoring program. The tnAchieves Ambassadors get to participate in events and learn leadership skills that they can carry with them wherever they go. This semester, the Ambassadors are going to a ropes course in Maryville to learn what it takes to be a leader and to be part of a team. Ambassadors also serve as mentors for our Peer2Peer Mentoring program. As mentors, the Ambassadors are able to to share how they got through their first year of college to other tnAchieves students who are just entering college.
All of the community colleges have some sort of leadership programs or ways to get involved, so look out for these opportunities! Whether it is with tnAchieves, your college, your church, or your community, it is important to get involved. Share your talents and learn from others. These types of experiences are excellent resume builders and will pay off in the future! Remember... you have NO Excuses!
