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.

I am a Junior at the University of Memphis, and my majors include criminal justice and social work. I work at East High School as a Success Coach within Peer Power. First and foremost, Peer Power is more than just a job. Peer Power is fellowship and understanding combined with the encouragement and tools needed to be the best that I can be, both in and outside of work. It’s taking that encouragement and those tools and empowering high school students to do the same. Peer Power has impacted me as an individual by giving me the opportunity to positively impact the lives of students, teachers, and my peers, as well as giving me life skills that I will utilize throughout my entire life.
