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 $2,100,000, 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.

During my time with the program, I have had the privilege of working with outstanding individuals and future professionals.  From being involved in the program, my whole perspective of involvement and service oriented learning has grown.  The program can be analogous to wearing contact lenses; imagine that your doctor has given you a prescription to wear corrective lenses.  If you only wore one contact lens, your vision would be foggy and unclear.  Before Peer Power came to many schools, the aspirations and mental pictures of the many were bleak, foggy, and dim.  Yet once the fusion of Peer Power and the Memphis City School systems began, the goals and expectations of students became clearer and more focused in the same way as a great pair of contacts.  I am convinced that this program will continuously reach new pinnacles as fresh ideas and different individuals blend.  I am an eye witness to this each time I meet a new scholar and college mentor.
