MTSU Partnership Program

Do you want to connect with a high school student, work with them on study skills, discuss college life, and serve as a mentor for someone considering going to college? Then you should join MTSU Partnership Program and volunteer to mentor students at one of MTSU's partner schools in Nashville. As a volunteer in the MTSU Partnership Program you will work with students in the AVID program which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, which is designed for students in the academic middle who have the desire to graduate and go to college. This is a great way to increase your communications skills and build your resume for the future. MTSU is seeking volunteers for its AVID Partnership Program in the seven schools in Davidson and Rutherford County.

How It Works
AVID students are enrolled in at least one of the high school's courses of rigor such as Honors or Advanced Placement. The students then receive support in an academic elective class called AVID which is taught during the school day by a trained AVID teacher.
