"Paying it Forward" is what college students who participate in our 50/50 Protege Mentoring Program do. They sign up to provide FREE volunteer services hours in after school programs in the inner city Nashville community.
As volunteers, they provide one on one homework assistance and tutoring in basic literacy, math and English to hundreds of elementary and high school students. They become role models and share their stories to help underprivileged youth aspire to pursue higher education.
The 50/50 students learn the power of giving back before they graduate. They influence younger students through building healthy relationships that help foster educational and personal growth.
