The Memphis Model involves implementing Success Coaches within classrooms during instructional hours. Success Coaches receive 48 hours of summer training at the University of Memphis and participate in Monthly Motivator training sessions. Peer Power is currently the largest external employer of University of Memphis students.
Success coaches lead by example and show it is okay to be smart, value education, and help others. The role of the Success Coach is to collaborate with the teacher to provide instruction to students, while also serving as a role model for the high school students.
