An American generation at risk needs the kind of help that only Peer Power can offer.  Today, Peer Power needs you.

MAKE A GIFT TODAY

Peer Power has made remarkable progress in helping hundreds of high school students improve their grades, graduate, and get ready for college.  These are young people attending schools in neighborhoods that besieged by serious economic and crime problems.  Right now, Peer Power is giving more than 1,000 students much more than good grades and college counseling.  It’s giving them hope. 

Most importantly, Peer Power is scalable and replicable.  With the commitment of the administration, faculty, and students, the program can be adapted to fit practically any existing public school in communities of any size – as long as funds are available to support it.

The average annual cost of successfully running Peer Power in a single school for a full year is approximately $50,000.  The current annual budget for the program is $1,750,000, which includes payments to tutors and regular third-party evaluations to ensure our program's effectiveness.  The program's administrative and overhead costs are entirely covered by our existing contributions.  Your support will go where it can make the most difference - directly to our scholars and tutors.  New contributions will accelerate the progress we have been making over the past eight years while improving the academic performance of many more young people in more schools.

I am a Native Memphian, East High Graduate, and University of Memphis Alumnus who takes pride in being able to say that I serve where I was raised. As a Peer Power Program Director, I have the opportunity to impact the lives of students who share similar beginnings as I do. These scholars benefit greatly from my experience as a student leader during college, my years of international travel as a gospel singer, and my lifelong dedication to GOD and my local church. I am a walking billboard of what is possible regardless of where you come from. It is from this philosophy, that I work to create, grow, and sustain programs that help hone youth into the people they were created to be. I started with Peer Power at its inception and I am honored to continue through our glory days.
