Memphis Model in the classroom

Peer Power works with the University of Memphis to make Success Coaches available within the classroom at our partner Shelby County Schools. Students do not have to apply or pay to be part of the program. They receive math, science and language arts assistance in a smaller, more focused student-to-instructor setting that provides more specific and differentiated coaching.
