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.

For more information, please contact us at info [at] peerpowerfoundation [dot] org.

I want to be somebody, someday!

Cortney C. Richardson

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.
